Happy new year...?

Happy new year, everyone. As is the tradition, along with the new year comes a raise in bus pass price, as well as it's negatively correlated decrease in quality.

Some fools at the bus system decided January 2nd would be a Saturday schedule, despite the fact that many people have to go to work. The result? A lineup for the 45 at the Brossard terminus, the length of which I have never seen in my life. It was wrapping around the entire autoparc. Tensions were high. People were fighting with others who were cutting in. This is not a good way to start the year...especially when they increased my pass from an already outrageous $99 to $103.

I have a car. But work is too far and traffic-y to drive.
