Things Cornell Students Wish They Could Say to TCAT

With a massive campus and frigid winters, Cornell students rely on the TCAT, and many of them have some strong feelings about the bus system, some more negative than others. While many would never voice these strong feelings to the actual bus system, just in case they decided to leave and never come back, here are a few things we’ve all have thought at least once:

10.) Nate, ‘20:
“I KNOW YOU SAW ME RUNNING. WE MADE EYE CONTACT. OK TCAT, OK.”

9.) Brianna, ‘19:
“Is it more awkward to sit next to a stranger, or to stand across from the clearly open seat?”

8.) Mary, ‘19:
“Why is it that whenever I’m actually on time, I have to wait 15 minutes for the TCAT to show up, but the second I’m even the slightest bit late, every bus magically discovers their schedule and leaves me behind.”

7.) Chad, ‘21:
“That bonus trip to Ithaca College was fun, but please take me back to Cornell, I’ve already missed two lectures.”

6.) Mike, ‘18:
“Are all the drivers deaf??? Because they clearly don’t hear it when I request my stops and I’m tired of looking out the window as my destination passes by like some goddamn dramatic movie.”

5.) Nigel, ‘21:
“Warning for the freshmen free bus pass: ALL the freshmen have a free bus pass.”

4.) Olivia, ‘18:
“DO NOT LET ANYONE ELSE ON THIS BUS, IF WE PACK IN ANY TIGHTER I’M GOING TO HAVE TO CHARGE THE GUY BEHIND ME FOR THIS UNINTENTIONAL LAP DANCE.”

3.) Carolina, ‘20:
“Shit, which bus am I on again? Is this the number 30 or 82?”

2.) Noah, ‘21:
“Stop glancing back at me, I’ll get off this bus when I start to recognize buildings, buddy. Do you even head BACK to Cornell?”

1.) Meaghan, ‘19:
“God where the hell am I? That was a wrong turn. This is not the right bus… I’m going to die here. Where the hell am I? Oh wait this is my stop.”

However unreliable, time-consuming, or straight up terrifying it can be to take the TCAT, it’s super important to daily life at Cornell and life would be hell without it. Still, that won’t stop the students from complaining.
