They must have gotten Keanu and all the passengers off.
+1 for the 90s shout-out
Is this a regular part of the route? Looks like fun.
This picture is artfully cropped, although it had me going for a while. Perhaps if MARTA buses could pop wheelies, we would get more peeps on them…
Now how awesome would it be if MARTA installed hydralics on all their buses?
The cool MARTA buses were the extra-long ones with a hinge in the middle they used to have. If you were sitting in the back, you would actually lose sight of the driver during a turn…
I remember that experience, kind of cool. I also remember what it was like to be sitting at a stoplight in a compact car when that bus came around the corner, convinced the bus driver had temporarily lost sight of the back half of the bus.
is your bus on a tow truck, or are you just happy to see me?

This must be the route #2 bus … It was always breaking down somewhere.
I was sitting with the photographer at Taco Mac when we looked out the window and saw this. We all did a double-take when we saw the bus from where we were sitting next to the window, so the cropping accurately represents what we saw!
As far as the #2 breakdown comment above, I am a somewhat regular rider of the #2 bus (1-4 days/week). I have not experienced it breaking down. However, twice in the last 6 months I have experienced the bus flying down Ponce towards Decatur and the driver missed the “veer-right” to stay on Ponce and continued on Scott.
When the entire bus starts screaming, the driver knows they have gone the wrong way!
Both times, the driver did a scary 3+ point turn during rush hour at Parkwood to get back to Ponce.
Another uplifting photo from Decatur Metro.
