Bad bus? Take the taxi -- on us!
When public transportation doesn't work right, wouldn't it be nice to be able to get your money back or even have the fare paid for another form of transit? This Birmingham (UK) Mail story says that's happening for riders of the Travel West Midland line: "Refunds for taxis will be paid in some circumstances when a bus is more than an hour late or if a wheelchair user cannot get on a vehicle." Such a deal! (Photo by Kenn Kiser via morgueFile.com)
