Thank You to the People of Shaolin China
It is true as Wendell Shedd has noted in the comments to this blog that the little buses that form the bulk of public transportation in Bishkek are horribly overcrowded. However, there is one route that uses a bigger, roomier and airier bus. It is 149. The 149 buses were all donated by the city of Shaolin China and utilize a superior design to the other vehicles in service in Bishkek. I am now making it a habit to take the 149 or "Chinese bus" rather than the smaller ones whenever I can. It is definitely usually worth the extra ten minute wait.
