Metro bus service, like most urban bus systems, moves at its own deliberate pace. What are your experiences (or views) in terms of the safety vs speed trade-off? Is there a trade-off?

I wish there was more speed. I mean some of these buses can go only 20 mph sometimes. That to me is unacceptable. I wish there were more buses that ran more frequently. Instead of to the current schedules, that sometimes make no sense. But, I think they are just trying to carry more passengers(money) on every bus. I don't know. I just want them to run faster!

You mean it's safe to be at the bus stop at 7:30 am as well as at 6:30 pm (when buses are presumably not having to deal with rush hour traffic)?

There are so many variables to this question, (ie. location, time of day, traffic in the area, etc.) it's hardly even a question. You might want to ask about a specific area and time.
