    Just noticed all our city buses now have a bike rack on the front.
    these are really large vans, twenty passengers or so, not big
    buses.

    Just thought it was neat.

    My office used to be in downtown Minneapolis and one of the guys I worked with used to use those bus racks.

    One day he put his bike on the rack and hopped on the bus as usual, but when he got to his stop downtown his bike was gone.

    He said he figured that someone got off the bus on one of the stops before his and just helped themselves to his bike. /img/vbsmilies/smilies/frown.gif

    Must have been some time ago. All buses have video now. Even
    the small ones we have.

    It is nice living in an area where most still don't lock the front door.
