Poverty and public transportation

Poverty and public transportation: “If you miss your bus,” Ferrell repeated, “well, there’s an hour out of your day at best. But what if that makes you an hour late to work, or causes you to miss a doctor’s appointment or a meeting? What if it costs you the opportunity for a job? Or what if you just miss your bus and have to sit in the hot sun or the freezing cold or the pouring rain and wait an hour for the next one?

“If you’re a person of low income, or limited income, and you depend on the bus, that’s the world you live in. That’s the real world.”
