I know a lot of cyclist who get out the fancy road bike on the weekend and do a bit of training. Heck, I even hit the verdi loop once in a while and have my eye on the clock for exactly how long the loop takes me. Apparently, bus drivers do a bit of training as well. You have to keep that gas pedal foot in top shape you know!
Seriously though, I hop scotched with this driver in training all the way down Mill St. From a cycling opinion he did pretty darn well. He stayed behind me for about a block before hitting a bus stop rather than passing and blocking the bike lane in front of me. He also gave a wide berth (more than 3ft) when passing. So kudos to the RTC training program. Seems like they're doing a good job.
