OMG:

To those people who decide to board the bus (ANY bus going to campus along King) at Lester or worse, Phillip...and then get off at Seagram...WALK THE FOUR STEPS TO GET TO CAMPUS, IT WILL TAKE YOU LESS TIME! The bus is already so packed, especially in the morning, we don't need you people trying to jam in and waste time just so that you can save yourself four steps. Leave the bus to the people who actually need it. Besides, you pay so much more just to live close to campus..what was the point of that if you are taking the bus anyways....

  1. nah genius, unless you are a cheetah, you are not going to outrun the bus. We all paid the same fees and thus deserve the same service.

    1. nah genius, unless you lack a pulse and a pair of functioning legs it's faster to cut across the plaza to anywhere on the East side of campus rather than fuck around with bus in peak travel times.

      2a has it right, it's not just laziness- it's dumb laziness

  2. Have you ever thought that they might be late to submit an assignment and have been running to school? The bus is clearly faster than walking, and typically arrives 5 minutes before classes start for the hour. I'm all for proper bus etiquette, but you're just getting your panties in a bunch over some petty shit. Save your butthurt ranting for something that actually affects you for more than 30 seconds, like people standing in the aisles.

    Or better yet, go up to the person that's annoying you so much and tell them instead of the internet.

    1. From personal experience, its way faster to walk from phillip than to try and squish on the bus to make it to campus. Half the time the bus driver wont move until everyone is packed in behind the line. Plus there are 3 lights before the Seagram bus stop and chances are that ull get stuck in at least one.

    2. 2a here again. I forgot to add that this is during peak hours.

    3. Have to agree with 2a on this one, they waste everyone's time trying to squish on there. Lazy asses

  3. "Leave the bus to the people who actually need it", well you're already on the bus before it hits those stops. If it was full by your stop and you were left in the cold, then it's not the fault of people who want to get on at later stops because it's people who live in YOUR area who are crowding the buses. People who live closer to campus still pay the bus fee every term, so why should you be the only one who benefits from it? Heck, people who live on campus still pay the bus fee.

  4. Nah. I pay a decent amount to live next to the Sunview bus stop, so imma make the most of it.

  5. Are you gonna fucking decide how close I have to be to university to take the bus now, you fucker? It's a transit problem, not my problem. I don't live my life to convenience your annoying ass...

    1. I agree that it is a transit problem as well. Mind you, I have to agree with OP - seems like more effort to take the bus than walk from those stops.

  6. Nope, the students pay their goddamned money and are forced to get the bus passes, might as well make good use of it. Perhaps if the passes weren't forced to be purchased along with tuiton, this wouldn't be such an issue.

  7. TBH you could also get off at Seagram and "walk to campus" since it is closer. If your logic is actually consistent then you are also the one being stupid.

    1. Sorry, I meant get off at Phillip*

  8. I guess I will be the first one to say it. OP, I 100% agree with you. If I lived that close, I would look forward to a walk to school in the morning. I live really far from campus, so I don't have this luxury and therefore have to take the bus every day. I actually saw a girl sprinting to the bus today when it was stopped at UW plaza only to get off at Seagram. And to all those who are inevitably going to say "Maybe she was late" or, "Maybe she needed to hand something in"....she was the last one to get off the bus and then walked onto campus at a very reasonable pace, obviously not in a hurry. So I may also be the bad guy, but I don't really care. It's just people being lazy, and that's really a shame. Just laugh about it to yourself every time you see it. That's what I do ;)

    1. Agreed! I agree with OP as well. I see this all the time. People getting on at Phillip and Sunview just to get off at Seagram. Maybe if it was raining or something I would understand, but it happens every morning.

  9. I hate it on the way back. Sometimes the bus driver leaves you behind because the bus is too full of people that will get off at Phillip or Lester. At least on the way to school you again already on the bus! But on the way back the people who actually need the bus might have to stay back for those lazy bums who can't walk to the next stop

    1. Yeah, I live on Lester and I sometimes take the bus to campus (usually when I'm late for work), but unless there's a crazy storm I walk back because I know there are people who live in places like Kitchener and waiting for another bus adds on to an already long bus ride.

      Plus, I'm usually not in a rush to go home, vs. a rush to get to my class/job on time.

  10. I don't agree since I personally take the bus when I am unable to walk for more than a few minutes. Some people have physical limitations that are not visible. Try to be more compassionate. Also, these students are paying for GRT so they can do whatever the fuck they want

    1. I agree. I just broke my ankle recently and am currently weaning off of crutches but still have difficulty walking distances. You may not be able to see my ankle brace (or I may be trying to go without it), but if I'm in pain and walking is making it worst, hell yes I'm going to take a bus that will reduce my walking as much as possible....

    2. While this is totally true and all the power to any people who need to take the bus for these reasons - I feel like you are missing OPs point. I have seen people literally run from their buildings at Sunview to catch the bus... I feel like more often than not, it is laziness.

  11. 7 is right. If it is such a short walk, and you dislike the crowds, you can get off and walk from the stop which you deem so close. You say the people who need it. You are the exact same distance from campus at that stop so saying they should walk and you continue to ride is silly.
