With regards to the overcrowding on buses going to the university, it's a necessary lesson that people must learn. If I'm waiting at a bus stop and a bus comes to the bus stop and I see it's full, my first thought is "damn, it's full, but thanks for stopping" because the driver, in my mind, is trying to get as many people as he can on that bus so other students and I can get to class.
If I'm already on a bus and a driver keeps trying to pack more people in, I can also understand why he's doing this. We all want our personal space, but it must be surrendered when you get on the bus. I shake my head when I see people who need the aisle to themselves rather than one person beside another in the aisle. This is why the drivers keep saying "Move back please" they know people are not utilizing the entire bus.
The drivers are trying to imprint in our heads that personal space means squat when we're on their bus. So, please folks, we all want to get to class. The drivers are doing their part to get us there; let's do ours even if we are sardines for 20 minutes or so.
