Are you good at public transportation?

I don’t have to take the bus often, but when I do... I’m always one minute too late.

(I blame google maps)

I'm usually good at it, but sometimes the bus comes a minute or two early. They say that they don't consider that a problem because my stop isn't a major stop. The last major stop before mine is 5 blocks away. So if the bus comes to that stop at the right time, it can go full speed to the next major stop, and apparently it doesn't matter if all the people at all the stops in between miss it because it came too soon. So I've learned that I have to get out there a few minutes early. It never used to be that way, but I guess that's the way it is now.
@TeresaRudolph71 I need to stop trusting google and use the bus company’s website.

@SW-User Yeah, well that was where I looked, at the company's website. But they told me that was just an estimate. But there is a place where I can look to get real time information on when the bus is actually coming. So I guess I've had to learn a few things the hard way.

@SW-User In D.C. today, yes. The storms came quick and left a lot of water.
@Shayla i heard about swamped vehicles but didn’t see those pics.

@SW-User Yeah. A decent portion of DC is actually below sea level. Floods are inevitable.
Public transportation in my rural area is super easy to deal with.. as long as you call the day before they come to your front door within an hour of you needing to be somewhere. You can call the same day, but it's more expensive.
I'm terrible at public transport in big areas where you have to meet the bus somewhere at the right time, but I've only done it a few times.

@ScarletWitch I sweat too much to do that outside of winter.

In London the Tube is the pretty standard way to get around... every other means of transportation kinda falls short (expensive, not suitable for rush hour, etc)

I've only been on public transportation twice in my life and it was okay. (Have always lived rural)
Lol. I'm pretty good at it when I need to take it.
Neither good nor that bad.
Smhw manage.
