Greyhound Bus sign

West Coast Road Trip {format} 15:14 Jake Warga

"Iíve noticed, talking with people, that it seems the less you pay for transportation, the closer you get to Jesus." Public transport travellers, ridiní the rails, and living on the dog. "Next day, itís greyhound time. Our driverís retired Air Force: hearing aid, glasses, fake teeth. ĎIím bionic man!í he says when I ask him, íWhat time do we get to Grantís Pass?í He doesnít wear his seatbelt. He keeps sticking his finger in his ear adjusting his hearing aid thinking itís feedback heís hearing. I hear it too, a squealing sound."
