Gone are the Gropers

lady bus

Hey, here's a novel idea: a public transportation system a lady can get into without worrying about being groped! Any woman who's been on a crowded subway train can attest to the cleverness of this new approach, as adopted in Mexico City with a women-only bus service.

The idea here, as reported by MSNBC, is to protect female passengers from "groping and verbal abuse common on the city's packed public transportation system." Mexico City's buses carry twice as many passengers as New York City's.


The dick-free buses utilize the same stops as other buses along two busy routes; the city anticipates growing the program to cover 17 routes in all by April.
