Bus BS

by @ 9:09 am. Filed under Personal

So I got on the bus yesterday and tried to buy an all-day pass for 3.50 by dropping in 3 1$ coins and 2 quarters. The bus driver said they only sold those on weekends.

Ok, my screwup, I didn’t read the rules, so I lost 2$. I reached for a transfer and he said “You only gave me 1.25”.

Turns out in King County the bus drivers add up the coins dropped into the machine visually.

Am I the only one that thinks that’s exceedingly stupid given that the coin slots allow you to put in dollar coins? Along with the fact the driver has a scant few seconds to look at the coins he’s been given and determine how much was dropped in. (I had used 3 of the new gold dollars too, not the old Susan B’ silver ones)

Called in a complaint about it this morning, doesn’t feel like a situation that should continue as-is.
