Bus driver envy

From the Associated Press:

A 15-year-old boy stole a bus, drove it along a public transit route, picked up passengers and collected fares, authorities said Sunday.

Wow. And I thought I was bad for dressing up as an old-school Metro driver for Halloween.

“I drove that bus better than most of the LYNX drivers could,” the teen, who is too young to drive legally, told a deputy after he was stopped and arrested. “There isn’t a scratch on it. I know how to start it, drive it, lower it, raise it.”

Evidently, he stole a decommissioned bus that was about to be sold at auction. I wonder how he decided which route to drive.
