PROVO IS ALSO CHILL THIS TIME OF YEAR

After the student masses are gone, and before the EFY children arrive, BYU is very calm. It's quite relaxing, really. And while the invasion of the EFY children makes the northern end of BYU rather insufferable at times, the rest of Provo, including the bus, is mostly immune from the phenomenon and stays calm all summer.

The bus is always a little emptier this time of year, meaning more open seats, less stopping, and happier bus drivers. Everybody seems a little more relaxed, and hey, if someone is running to catch the bus, why not wait a second? We're a little ahead of schedule anyway.

I even saw Anal-Retentive crack a smile the other day. A real, genuine broad smile. Weird. But it just proves my point.

  1. Our commuter trains do not wait. I've seen many times someone running and actually making it to the door just as it closes. It would take maybe a half a second for the operator (they're not drivers) to just open the door. But they don't. Yikes.

  2. I've heard that trains can be much more persnickety than buses. Fortunately, since the train is still a few years off in Provo, we don't have to worry about that yet. Wait, fortunately? No, I still want the train!
