Tales from the Transit Line

Public Service Announcement from the Evening Commute:

Sometimes, on rainy days especially, it is hard to tell the difference between mud and poo.

While navigating a public transit system, however, you are encouraged to err on the side of caution and assume that any brown substance on the ground is the latter.

Public Service Announcement from the Morning Commute:

Tired of missing your bus or feeling more like a sardine than a commuter?

You have a chance to vote for better public transit in the BC election today.

The BC New Democrats say they will re-direct millions in carbon tax revenue to increase funding for public transit and improve service as a practical response to climate change.

The choice is yours, but the results for public transit over the last 12 years under the BC Liberals is clear – there are no more buses.

Public Service Announcement from the Evening Commute:

If you are an old man who smells like he’s most certainly carrying a large quantity of marijuana and is visibly toting a bag of chips, don’t walk anywhere alone – in the Greater Vancouver Area, especially.

Further to this warning, do not, under any circumstances, also pull a wad of $20 bills out of your wallet – numerous times, as you sit, reeking, on a SkyTrain.

Report from the Evening Commute:

Although it has long been a recognized snack meat, a recent study reveals that one should never have a nibble (or a gobble) of garlic sausage before taking public transit.

Doing so has been found to be hazardous to the health of fellow commuters.

Report from the Evening Commute:

Across MacDonald [Street?] and down an alleyway there’s a party tonight, according to some guy who still has to ‘go home, get changed, smoke a doobie, have a beer, and [other] sh*t like that.’

Report from the Morning Commute:

Vancouver commuters are still reeling from the threat of a natural disaster today, after a 7.7 magnitude earthquake hit the West Coast off the Haida Gwaii islands on Saturday night.

“Do you think a tsunami could hit SFU [Simon Fraser University],” a young man asked his friend at a mountain-top university bus stop early Monday.

His friend shrugged.

“Well, there are bears here,” the first young man added.

In unrelated news, in case anyone missed this news flash 20 years ago, we are repeating it here, today, as a public service announcement: Wearing half a bottle of CK One is no longer fashionable.

On a related note, brushing your teeth is.

Public Service Announcement:

Have you ever had to walk to your bus or train stop – or even all the way to work, in the rain!?

Was it windy and did your cheap umbrella break?

Did you finally get on your mode of transit or into your office and did it smell like mothballs?

We’ve all had one of those mornings, and now we all have access to the Cure for the Commuter Blues (CCB)

Our CCB T-shirts will allow you to express yourself so that you don’t bottle up your rage and end up hitting the bottle – or worse.

Tell the world how you feel and say what you want to say without saying a word.

Here are a few samples of our most popular CCB T-shirts:

– Fu*k you, you fu*king fu*k.

– Are you fu*king kidding me!?

– You fu*king stink! No, really, you smell bad.

– I’m going to fu*cking kill somebody! [On the back] Not really, I’m just super mad.
