Seattle Public Transportation Has Gone to The Dogs — Well, One Dog

For once, here's a positive commuting story: Jeff Young's dog, Eclipse, often rides the bus with him in Seattle. But if the bus pulls up to the stop and Jeff isn't quite done with his cigarette yet, Eclipse will hop on it without him.

The drivers let her on, and she leaps over the other passengers to grab a window seat. Young gets on the next bus, and they meet up a few stops later.

So, where does the canine commuter disembark? (Heh.) A dog park, of course.

Good morning. I'm David Greene with a positive commuting story for once. Jeff Young's dog, Eclipse, rides the bus with him a few times a week in Seattle. But if the bus pulls up to the stop and Jeff isn't quite done smoking his cigarette, well, Eclipse hops on without her owner. The driver lets her on, and she leaps over other passengers to grab a window seat. Jeff hitches the next bus, and they meet up a few stops later. So where does this canine commuter disembark? Well, that would be a dog park, of course. It's MORNING EDITION. Transcript provided by NPR, Copyright NPR.
