Who rides the M8 bus anymore? Funny you should ask.
In fact, the ill-fated M8 bus’s riders include an Elle editor, an artist/author, a kid named Woolfie, a drunk guy in a wheelchair and the Doughnut People all ride the M8, which is about to see its service drastically cut in the doomsday budget.
Writes Elle‘s Miranda Purves:
Woolfie and I made our “doughnut friends,” a single mom and her son, who get on with a different doughnut every day, and now always sit behind us. The two boys both speak public transit. “What’s your favorite train?” Woolfie asks, running his toy N express train along the back of the seats. “The G!” his friend says, referring to the one train that doesn’t dip through Manhattan on its way from Queens to Brooklyn.
