Default What do you do on the bus/train?

I've been using the public transit for over 3-4 years now. Most of the trips take about 30mins to 2 hours. I always wondered whether I am simply wasting time just by sitting there.

MOSTLY I have my iPod on high volume (not max) and day dream. Since university started, I would sometimes read books that don't require taking notes.

What do you do on the train/bus when you are alone?

When with a buddy, we just talk all the way through.

I just listen to music like yourself, or play the games on my phone. There's always bad reception on the train, but if there's a stream of decent internet connection I'll surf the web/IM.

I always take a book with me with the intention of reading, but never actually read it.

I just sit there and think. Or stand, depending how crowded the bus is.

I sit and listen to music on my corrupted iPod and look out the window. When the bus stops to pick up more people I look at them while they pass my seat.

If I'd go on a longer trip by train (like 3 hours plus) I'd try to bring my laptop. I've noticed that they have outlets for them over the seats and the trains are supposed to have internet connection.

Hahaha, yeah transit in Sweden is awesome.
Personally I just play my NDS or PSP on a long trip.
Otherwise I'll sit and look out the windows or talk to my seat buddy.

I listen to my iPod and stare at the scenery outside. If I don't stare at the scenery, I stare at random things that I can look at.

Lol, I once fell asleep on the school shuttle and it must've passed my stop maybe like 5 times before I woke up.
Best waste of an hour ever.

Luckily I was only going back to my dorm and finished classes for the day, lol.

I have to ride the bus for about 20-45 mins(1 hour if I'm unlucky.) a day, so I listen to music and/or play on my DS during the trip.(My earpieces are broken for the moment though, so I just play my DS now. -sadface-)
I've become an expert on my kirby games thanks to that. \o/ (Pokémon too. Spent most of my time training my pokés during my trips.)
Though, If I don't do that. I'll just stare out the windows and think about stuff.

I am amazed over people who are able to sleep on bus/train rides...

When you spend 2 hours on train rides and roughly 30 mins on bus ride everyday, sleeping while commuting becomes an essential life skill.

Bus in my states is hell. Seriously, a lot of robbery, irresponsible driver, bad services, what else. DIRTY seats.. Yeah. Rode kind of thrice in my ENTIRE life, none of it was a great experience.

On-Topic: Cover me nose the whole time till I reached my destination since the scent is really... @_@ And no air-cond + humid air just makes things worse. So yeah.
