4. Tom: What%27s it like on the red bus? Martin: Almost the opposite.

Usually when I get on the bus, I%27m standing all the way up the mountain so it%27s really not very comfortable to ride on those even though they have the tour bus comfy seats but it%27s a pretty quick route --about 15 minutes up here. Tom: Oh, that is fast. That sounds like it%27s faster than the blue bus but I heard the drivers are pretty fast. Martin: Sometimes the drivers can be very nice and ____________________ and sometimes the drivers act like your not really there.
