Speaking of the M15 Select .... An East Village resident heading home passed along this story from yesterday evening... Two women walked up to an M15 Select bus yesterday in the 60s on Second Avenue. The two hadn't even been to the ticket kiosk when the bus departed ... to keep on schedule and all. Well, the women were pissed that the driver didn't wait for them while they bought their tickets.
So, rationally, they ran after the bus. Per the EV resident: "When he stopped the bus at the light, they stood in front of it."
"Lady in the hat stood there for 15 minutes. Bus driver did not budge because 'he gets paid to sit here.' Driver finally let us out the back door. For all I know they're still there. Are they heroes? Villains? I hope she doesn't try this with a subway train. Or do I?"
