Adorable little girl just got on the bus&sat next to me. How she gets excited about riding the bus is what the inner me is like 😉 #trimet

I feel like a Time Lord! The new bus seats are TARDIS blue! Can we get the brakes to sound like a TARDIS, now? #TriMet

As the bus comes the little girl in rainboots starts cheering, “14, 14, yay 14 is here!” So cute! @trimet

It’s raining, I’m cold. Why do you tease me so? And then the door opened. Thanks @trimet.
