Transportation Discuss bus lights in the Vacation Planning forums; who else thinks that they should not turn off the lights on the buses at night it makes me realy tired....
who else thinks that they should not turn off the lights on the buses at night it makes me realy tired.
A dream is a wish that will come true!
I have to say I love that they turn off the lights. At the end of a long day at the park, I find it comforting since I feel disheveled and am glad I don't have to sit avoiding eyes with others that are feeling the same way. Also, on my last trip staying at Port Orleans Riverside, I loved sitting in the dark on the way home listening to the crickets chirping. It was soothing after a long day.

I'm going to agree with BarnicleBaron- especially on very crowded rides back to the resort.
I always give my seat up to a lady or elderly person and its much easier to see outside the bus and anticipate the stops and turns without crashing into the other standing passengers around me.
I love having the lights turned off on the bus. It makes the bus feel more calm and is kind of a relaxing way to end the day.

The downside is when they come to your stop and flip those bright lights on.
Some people are like Slinkies.
They aren't really good for anything,
but they still bring a smile to my face when I push them down a flight of stairs.
Friends are Gods way of apologizing to us for our families.
Exactly!! However, it is really nice to be able to wind down, like people have said. But when the bus gets back and the lights come on, you have to come out of your relaxed state and walk back to your room. I wish I was still a kid so someone could carry me back!!

I love having the lights off. Like everyone said it helps you relax and unwind from the long day at the park. I also like being able to see out, i like seeing the parks at night when we are leaving. Also it helps the bus driver see better.
I too give my seat off to elderly and those with babys the only down side Im shorter than Lou and those straps are hard to grab reach of but they need the seat more than I

Re: bus lights
Sorry, but I'll have to agree with everyone else. It feels nice to be able to fall asleep on the bus!

Re: bus lights
Lights off=Yes. No other way I can think to put it. After standing in line (probably) for your bus for a while, in addition to a long day at the park, there's no other place i'd want to be than in a calm, quiet, bus. It reminds me of being little, and falling asleep and being taken to wherever you want to/need to go. It just gives your eyes and rest and give you time to think... something you might not be able to do with the lights on.
The Golden age never was the present age… but with human liberty we can fulfill the promise and meaning of America. To everyone a chance. To all people, regardless of their birth the right to live, to work, to be themselves, and to become whatever their visions can combine to make them. This is the promise of America...And I foresee the American adventure to continue for a long, long time!

Re: bus lights
I haven't been on the busses yet, but I have to say that the lights being off inside is also safer. It's hard to see out the window to drive when you have the lights from inside glaring off the glass.
