Next Stop: Love

HARRISBURG, Pa. (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – The bus is a vehicle for love.

If people knew they could get lucky riding the bus, maybe more would opt for public transportation according to Tom Collins, who runs the Museum of Bus Transportation in Hershey, Pennsylvania.

The museum houses 31 buses from as far back as 1912.

Many visitors tell Collins stories of finding the love of their lives while riding the bus, leading him to believe it’s THE place for dating.

He explains, “The bus is very romantic. People always talk about how they remember seeing someone on the bus and how that person became their husband or wife.”

Collins believes the fact that people are confined to a small space and forced to “sit pretty close” sparks fireworks.

He hopes folks learn to value buses again and maybe take to riding them more often, if only to find their soul mate.
