The response to his diatribe is easy:
Your maths is all wrong.
$4087 over 22 months is $185 per month. That, at $38 a return, is 5 trips on average per month. That
is not a daily commute. It is once a week. Such as being an outpatient at the hospital. Or shopping
at the Warehouse in town to save money on the pension. Or to see a friend from time to time.
You have built a story out of your own invention, founded on your very obvious bias.
And your $200,000 divided by 100 is $2000, which at $38 a return is 52 trips. One a week. Even that
is not a daily commute.
Again, your own figures prove you wrong.
And you have not the slightest idea of how wealthy or not those travellers are. You are guessing.
Interviewing your word-processor.
And the plural of bus is buses. 'Busses' is the plural of 'buss', the old word for a kiss.
