Why don't the drivers shut off the buses when they are "out of service?" every morning when I walk to work, I pass by a couple of these gas guzzling monstrosities, and as I pass near the end of the parked, still running bus, I always am disgusted at the smell of the pollution belching out of them. Is there some reason that the drivers cant shut the bus off while they are parked, resting, reading, eating or talking on their cell phone, do they REALLY need the bus running. Come on people, small changes are going to yield big results and this is a small change that could save money (hopefully keeping the cost of using the bus down) and also if buses are supposed to help the environment by taking cars off the road, isn't it kind of ridiculous to have one sit running for long periods of time at the side of the road? Once I saw a driver on the road by the sportsplex in the line of stopped, running buses, and he had his bus shut off, and I thought, why don't they all have the good sense to do that?
Please can someone tell me if there is a valid reason that they are leaving the buses running while out of service??
