The two major bus lines that transect Watertown have unique personalities, at least in my experience.
The #71 bus is a quiet bus. Most folks read. Some text. Some look out the window. I took this photo from my seat. No one seemed to notice.
The #70 bus is not a quiet bus, in my experience. Lots of folks in animated conversations, in a variety of languages. People who know one another from riding the same bus day after day, sharing observations and opinions all the way up Arsenal Street and into Cambridge.
I wonder how one bus develops a quiet “culture” and another a chatty “culture.”
Is the bus a community space for you or a sanctuary from which you rest from community?
