  •  My parents have a story about either me or my bro (10+ / 0-)

    from when we were young and went to Disney World. They asked whichever one of us what our favorite ride was. The answer: "the bus".

    Though, thinking about it, Disney's buses are essentially the limousine liberal version of actual public transit. No riffraff, friendly drivers, and direct service from point A to point B. The latter is possible with decent headways because the bus is part of the hotel stay (so they don't have to come up with funding) and because there's a lot of ridership (the chicken and egg problem - how do you get riders? provide good service / how you you provide good service? get enough riders to support it).

    warning: snark probably above
