Re: W.B.'s Bus Almanac for April 15th

There was a story, probably urban legend, of a bus operator who had a run that allowed a “swing with vehicle” meaning that he did not have to either wait for a lunch relief or pull into the depot for lunch. In surface speak any large off vehicle time is called “swing” which of course includes split runs with often as much as 4 hours between trips. In any case, the operator would pull out of the depot in the morning and somewhere on the way to the route, would park his bus in a secluded spot, and go to work at a second job. He would return in the evening just in time to pull in (or maybe make a partial trip just to show a few fares) and for some reason nobody ever questioned why he booked such a low number of fares.
