  • Public Transportation has a cutoff time so those passengers that work third shift, there is no public transportation for you.
  • Sometimes the buses are very late, which throws the passengers late for work.
  • Some routes the buses are very crowded, which causes some passengers to either stand or wait until the next bus arrive.
  • Public transportation doesn’t have extended services, so not only you can’t accept and third shift employment, you must stay in a certain radius because the bus only comes within the city limits.
