The bus stop is across the street, an important fact since the buses going the other way would take Jace out of the city instead of down to Guanajuato centro. Over the few days since he got here, Jace has already figured out some essentials about getting around using public transportation. Buses in Guanajuato go all over the city, but most of them end up in the centro at some point. Learning which buses go where and when and where to get on the buses and when and where to get off the buses, how to pay the fare (since often, the drivers don’t immediately take the bus fare but rather an assistant makes his way through the bus to collect the fare) takes practice and some knowledge of the city.
As a courtesy men usually stand for the women when the bus gets full, especially older women and women with children. And most passengers thank the bus driver as they disembark. Anything could happen on the bus since everyone (both young and old) rides the bus.
Jace has to show up early for the bus because there’s no bus schedule. Buses just arrive when they arrive so he has to assume that he’ll be standing there for 20+ minutes before one shows up to take him to the centro. Mexico has a more laid back culture in terms of time so Jace is learning how to work with that.
