"When u enter any transport and things seem off, u should alight immediately but with wisdom, act as if u forgot something, instead of sitting comfy hoping u are over thinking it. Hope She's found and well."

"Brt bus from chevron? Now they can't find the driver? But I thought Brt buses only do pick up from the park?"
