Taking public transport provides an opportunity to interact with a wider variety of people then I know.
Many of my kindness experiences seem to happen on public transport.
It seems that public transport offers a space in which people, de-centred from their familiar home or work spaces and routines, can be receptive to the needs of others, whether lost, lonely, late or plain confused. Public transport provides a space to loose yourself in your own i-phone, or to take the opportunity to connect with strangers. I am relishing the opportunity to do the latter.
Long live public transport!
