Trying out the Bus System

On the day I arrived, Veronica B. gave me a booklet called ETS RIDE GUIDE, introducing the transportation services of Edmonton. By reading that booklet, I find that adult ticket packs (at $21 for 10 tickets) is the best for me because I don't have to go to the office every day. To be honest, I think the bus fares are expensive. But I like the idea of transfers, which means that one ticket allows me to transfer in any direction within 90 minutes. 

After studying the transfer rules and the bus schedules for a few days, I went to T&T Supermarket by bus on Saturday, January 16.  That was my first shopping experience on my own. (Veronica drove me there on Monday).  It took me about 30 minutes to get there. West Edmonton Mall was so big that I couldn’t find my way to T& T at first. After asking lots of people, I got it. There were all kinds of Chinese food and the prices were good. I did my shopping as quickly as possible and went aboard a bus before the transfer expiry time. It was interesting.  Everything went well except for the moment when I should get off the bus because Mr. Bus Driver didn’t stop. I felt worried and ran to him, saying aloud, “I want to get off!”  He smiled to me and let me get off at the next stop. Fortunately, it’s not far from the previous one.

Later, I got to know why he didn’t stop where I should get off:  because I didn’t press the red button to request stop. I didn’t know that since no one had told me about it.  I had thought that if I stood up and moved to the door, the driver would know I want to get off. This is the case in China. But here, it’s completely different. Another adventure!
