Those little colorful bus transfers distributed by King County Metro drivers award paying passengers free additional rides for a few hours, but some locals have developed a system to extend their use.
The New City Collegian reported on the service, called Seattle Bus Transfer.
The site operates through user participation in which the first person to catch the morning bus comments the color and letter of the transfer through a funny title. Today for example features hits such as, “orange telephone” and “orange ticklemonster”, so yes today’s bus transfer is an Orange-T.
Knowing the service isn’t exactly ethical, the site posts a disclaimer stating its purpose is solely for entertainment and users must take responsibility for their own actions.
Meanwhile, Metro officials say services will need to be further curtailed if the agency isn’t given power to raise more revenue.
