Due to the congestion and parking problems in Hitchin, I recently applied for a bus pass. This has opened my eyes to a new world. When you are in a car, you go from A to B without much contact with other people, but whether you are waiting or on the bus, there seems to be someone to talk to.

I have found that I have met and talked to some very nice people of all ages. I also have had time to look round on my journeys which when you drive you are unable to do so, go on take the bus.
