Can you sit properly (*comfortably*) in buses?
Welcome back everyone!
Since the post on the unavailability of big clothes in Mauritius, I believe that Mauritians are not that small overall.
Though not all of you are concerned with this *inconvenience*, many of you do complain about those bus seats and also the inadequate space for the legs.
TVR! During my life, I have travelled in most of the buses throughout the island
They are : Triolet Bus Service (TBS), Rose Hill Transport (RHT), National Transport Corporation (NTC), United Bus Service (UBS), Mauritian Bus Service (MBS) and the privately owned ones (individuel).
And the problem remains the same, depending on the models of course but I rarely came across a bus in which I could sit with great comfort… perhaps the Blue Line ones?
Bis zouzou menaze
Most of you won’t notice this lack of space, but you will surely if you travel in those tiny models buses of Rose Hill Transport and privately owned ones (individuels).
Wow, these ones are so small that I remember I took them only if there was a free seat just at the last back row, in the middle or in the first front row!
ps to RHT : Your site is practically down!
Why don’t I offer my seat to a (standing) zoli mamzel?
If you are a zoli mamzel, and you are standing in the bus, I will never offer you my seat, for a simple reason lol.
If I do so, I won’t be able to stand straight in the bus (faire porte manteau) since I am much longer than the height of the ‘corridor’ of the bus.
From my experience, I estimate the height of a ‘normal’ bus to be around 1m90-1m92.
Some last words
It would have been so much better if in the future, the bus companies remember that Mauritians are neither Chinese nor Indians! They should design and order buses which will be appropriate for the population.
I think that most of them actually do not care about the comfort in their buses!
This is the reason why the authorities SHOULD ensure that the buses are safe/comfortable enough for our roads.
Most of you have surely travelled in bus during rainy weathers, nah? No comments.
