Dear Son #1,
It finally happened. The dream came true. You rode your very first bus. A TTC bus at that and what an experience. You were without a doubt the happiest person on that bus and we should all take the time to model your positivity in regards to public transit.
One thing I did forget to tell you, and this is pretty important for any return visits on the bus: the yellow cord is only used when you want to stop the bus. As enticing as it is to pull at random, I guarantee you won’t make any friends by pulling it simply for fun.
