Bus Post

This post is important because….uh…er…

I’ve got nothin’.

Except this – the ad says it’s 2 cents a mile to travel by bus.

So it would cost $20 to travel 1000 miles. Or just over six bucks to take a bus from Montreal to New York.

Of course, it was 1937, when the average wage was around 60 cents an hour.

Nowadays it’s about $100 for a one-way bus ticket from Montreal to N.Y.
