The Zen Of The Bus
New York Times
THE subway is New York itself: brash, loud, defiant, overcrowded and unpredictable. The bus, by contrast, is rarely seen as anything other than a lumbering, lurching, coughing cousin of its fleeter subterranean rival. In the myth and lore of New York the subway has the legs of an Irish Riverdancer, while the bus is no more athletic than an elderly man with back pain.
