Stop the Bus

I don't like the bus service here in Kuwait. I used to ride them when I was still in high school but I never enjoyed it. When I was in Canada I used to take the public bus everyday to school and back, and I really enjoyed it. Before I left the house I would call up this number and enter in the number of the bus stop near me, then an automated voice would tell me when the next bus would pass by. If she said 4 minutes then in exactly 4 minutes the bus would be there. This was back in 1993, imagine how things are now. In Kuwait on the other hand, riding the bus is a completely different story. Not only that but the bus drivers here are very aggressive on the road. They try to cut you off and make sudden stops.. they are a danger to everyone. I have gotten into fights with bus drivers trying to pull in infront of me soo many times its ridiculous. Where are they trained? Are they trained? In Canada also, the bus driver opens the doors to let people on or off ONLY at bus stops. He can't pull up on the side if someone is waving at him to stop, he isn't allowed to. In Kuwait bus drivers pull up like taxi drivers. Like Nibaq keeps saying, we need a subway system here.
