“the bus is the great equaliser – not merely a mode of transportation, but a socialisation engine par excellence. For many city kids, the bus is the first place they encounter people different from them in any significant register; equally, it’s one of the very first sites where we learn to negotiate the shared use of space. This power to bring people together in a space of mutual encounter, even for the space of an uncomfortable commute, is especially salutary at a time when citydwellers everywhere sometimes feel as if we’re hiving off from one another into distinct and mutually incomprehending clades” Adam Greenfield on buses
