SPD to 36 Riders: "Plan Ahead to Minimize Waiting Time"

This article in the latest Beacon Hill News made me giggle.

In reference to the recent spate of sexual attacks on female, Asian Beacon Hill bus riders, Seattle South Precinct community liaison Mark Solomon listed some tips on how to stay safe on the bus, and this one topped the list:

Keep bus schedules of frequently traveled routes and plan ahead to minimize waiting time.

As anyone who relies on the 36 knows, the schedule has nothing to do with anything. The bus is packed all day long, and it comes when it comes, and you should consider yourself lucky if it doesn't just pass you by because it's too full.

Might as well have said, "SPD to Women: Drop Dead."
