It would be nice if the Pioneer Valley Transit Authority (Western Massachusetts) would add some 60' articulated buses to their fleet like the transit authorities have in NYC and Boston. The bus to Holyoke Mall is always standing room only and my days of standing on buses are over after a major ankle injury in Dec 2011.
The largest buses they have in their fleet are 40'. I was up at UMASS the other day and some of the 40' buses they have up there have all the seats facing the aisle so they can cram in more standees.
These buses could be featured in a music video for Weird Al Yankovic's song "Another One Rides The Bus". -- I've experienced ImOn (when they were McLeod USA), Mediacom, Comcast, and Time Warner and I currently have DirecTV. They are much better than broadcast TV.
