Strathmore Place Wilshire Boulevard

Everybody on the Bus Has a Story

Laura Rios

I’m majoring in political science at UCLA. I may work in international relations. I want to learn other languages. I have dreams of going abroad.

Having a car is a big responsibility, and I don’t think I’m ready for that. Taking the bus is much more convenient for me. Everybody uses the bus. It’s not just a certain type of person. And they all seem to have a story.

Sometimes I listen to music or sometimes I do homework on my ride, but while I’m doing these things, I’m ultimately just thinking of my future. It’s a long way back home to Koreatown.
