While I was trying to figure out what to do about the bus driver who reeked of alcohol, passengers who had entered the bus before me were calling the authorities. The bus driver received a command to stop over the radio. We were approached by a van that took everybody where they needed to go, leaving the drunken driver behind.
This was a very well-organized rescue. I arrived at work only 7 minutes later than usual. The public transportation in this area is very good.
