transit fail

I was lacking a handy camera (and anyway, I was driving) so I will have to rely on the evocative power of narrative to paint this picture.

Roxboro Rd., the height of the morning rush hour. A DATA bus, broken down, police car behind it diverting traffic. A busload of weary people stand on the side of the road. A tow truck approaches in the distance. Another bus, nowhere in sight.

The LED sign on the bus reads "TRY TRANSIT".

Too bad! Would have made a great pic!

There is always this one. I used this as a discussion question on an exam for my robotics class. You'd be surprised how many kids didn't get it, even after we had been using gears for weeks! I wish I had saved some of their BS answers.
