I am sure that you are aware the night before whether or not you will be riding the bus or not, at least i am. Please please have your money or card ready before you get on the bus. There are a few reasons why the CTA people decided not to give out anymore transfers. One of them was to decrease the traffic when boarding the bus. You standing in front of the rest of us (freezing our asses off) looking for your card is NOT decreasing the traffic!!! You knew you were going to ride the bus so why didn't you get your card/money ready!!! i understand that sometimes we run out of our place in such a hurry therefore we don't have the card/money ready, however please please move to the side or grab a sit in front while looking for your card/money!!! you saying "i changed purses last night so i'm not sure where my card is" does not make things better!! You should have set the fucken' card aside then!! obviously you had time to set your freakin' lipstick aside since that's the first thing that fell out of your purse, if you had time to do that then i am assuming you would have had the time to put the fucken' bus card aside!!!
