Take the time to figure out where you want to go, when you want to get there, and how long it will take. Without free bus rides, it seems to be a strain on their resources. From the ride, I observed out of all the passengers who rode the bus along the 10 mile journey, there was not even one single white person who came on the bus. No free bus rides for the elderly!

I interviewed a 23 year old White female, named Jessica. In my opinion elderly people should get free bus rides because they dont work, its harder for them to do things. Elderly can not fight in wars, they are not as strong as the rest of the community of younger people. This is set by the city, and will be posted on the website.
