This is a factual question, but it seemed too mundane for GQ. I recently started wondering about a detail of everyday life, and now want some more data points:
When you take a public bus, are there buttons to let the driver know you want to get off at the next stop? Does some kind of chime ring when you press one, to alert the driver? What does it sound like?
If you want to, please mention roughly where that transit system is.
If you remember any of the above for other places or times you have visited and/or lived in, I’d like to hear about it as well.
I know that seems like a weird question, but I feel like it is the same everywhere, and want to know if I’m right.
