For over a year beginning in 2011, Wallace Richardson lived in his truck in Los Angeles. During that time, with his means of getting around serving as his home, he took the bus every day. “I saw people sleeping on the bus, sleeping on the benches,” he recalled. While he was homeless too, he at least had the privacy of his own vehicle. For others, the bus system was their sole refuge, offering a temporary escape from rough weather, triple-digit temperatures, or harassment. Being able to make fare meant a chance to rest for as long as the route allowed.
