I made it to my stop in time for a good spot on the line. The dark blotchy sky was still beautiful.
I checked my Bus Time app at 6:20 and there were no buses listed for the SIM22. Did I miss something? I was about to cross the lot to another stop when a bus rolled up. No name, just “Not in Service” flashing as the door opened. I checked the bus stop again for another SIM bus but there was only one. Oh well. I refreshed the app and it still didn’t show the 22. I guess because he wasn’t in service. (He never turned the sign over and I got a row all to myself.) He was late though. Should’ve been on the bus by 6:13 but I’ll let it pass.
7:14 Yeah, about letting it pass…
So we come to an absolute stop. I hear something over the loud speaker so I mute Weezy’s Carter V album and hear:
“All Jersey buses headed to Lincoln Tunnel, do not use expedited bus lane. I repeat, do not use expedited bus lane. Use regular lanes for Lincoln Tunnel, headed toward NYC.”
