# 4 - Southland park (southbound), on the way to work

Who says chivalry is dead? The bus started to pull away from 4th & Oak and a passenger pulled the cord for the next stop. The driver stopped but didn't open the doors. The passenger yelled "Next stop!" The driver still waited. A young man ran up to the doors, which the driver opened. The young man motioned behind him and started to walk a way. An older woman scurried up the sidewalk and got on the bus.

The bus was more full than usual for the morning, although I haven't been on this particular bus in awhile. There were at least a dozen people already on it when I got on and often it's empty at that point. A large number of people got off at my university stop, but quite a few people continued to the south.
