Riding the bus is okay. I don't mind the waiting in the rain, the questionable hygiene of the other riders, or the unpredictable schedules at a premium price. What really irks me is the smoothness of the ride. The horrible state of Portland's streets combined with the shock absorption of a covered wagon has me needing adult diapers on a ride longer than an hour. I now fully understand why a good quarter of my fellow riders smell like urine. Fix your streets Portland!
