Bus-Riding Cat on Board

 

Susan Finden poses in front of the image of herself and her cat Casper—who became famous for taking unaided trips on First Devon and Cornwall’s Number 3 route—on a bus introduced Oct. 12  as part of the Oct. 12 launch of four UGOBUS routes in the Plymouth area of the United Kingdom. According to the bus system, Casper routinely waits in line behind other passengers at a bus stop before boarding, sitting quietly as the bus moves, then disembarking. Other vehicles in the UGOBUS fleet showcase members of Plymouth’s Disabled Bus Users Group, the Plymouth Argyle soccer team mascot, and a police community support officer. First Devon and Cornwall is an affiliate of FirstGroup plc and a sister company to First Transit in the U.S.
