    I definitely agree with your thoughts! Sometimes it’s hard to commute because you have to make sure that you have plenty of time allowance to prepare for a bus ride. Like what you mentioned, some bus seems to stop at every corner even when it is standing room only. 🙁 Also, I definitely can relate with the amnesia scheme. You have to be persistent because if you don’t ask, sometimes conductors do take advantage and won’t give back your change. :/ It’s sad how there was a problem with the bus when you were about to take your daughter to the hospital. I know that there should always be a refund.

    I really hope that bus drivers always keep in mind that they are the ones in charge of passengers. They should follow safety rules to avoid mishaps on the road. Let’s cross our fingers that this new policy will pave the way for a good change.

    I am a commuter to, I agree that there are more disadvantages on riding bus, a lot of his conductor don’t respect and have no good manners for their passengers.

    I have to admit, I am scared of riding the bus with so many bus horror stories flying around. I usually opt for colurum vans and MRT when commuting.

    Just always be careful with your things when commuting. Anything can happen. Security is very important 🙂 There are too many abusive drivers and even commuters around us so just always be mindful of your belongings.

    I don’t think that bus conductor could cheat. In our place, tickets are issued to the passengers and there are bus inspectors along the way inspecting them. So how could the conductor cheat the bus company.

      They did, Gil. I saw it and a proof is that my ticket was already folded. After I gave him my fare, he did not give me the ticket yet, he went at the back ad looked for old tickets inserted at the chairs. That bus conductor knew that I am going to alight from the bus before the inspector come.

    Taking the bus at night, especially late at night is dangerous if you ask me. I usually take the bus on my way home at 11:30pm and I make sure to ride on one that has a lot of passengers for safety. Just make sure to have presence of mind especially when commuting at night. ^_^
