Unit 16: Taking a Bus



A: Tyler, do you know of an easy way to get to the airport? I'm flying home for the holidays.

B: Why don't you take the bus, Sylvia? That's what I always do when I fly.

A: Okay, but I don't know anything about the bus service here.

B: Well, let me ask you--you ever heard of "FastPass"?

A: No, not until now. Is that a bus line?

B: Yes, it is. It will take you straight to your terminal at O'Hare.

A: That sounds like what I need. Do you know how much it costs?

B: The last time I took it, it was $30 one-way. Let me see if I have their card in my wallet. Yeah, here it is. You should call 1-800-500-5500 to reserve a seat.

A: So, do I have to make a reservation?

B: No, you don't have to, you know. But it's better if you do. That way you can make sure you've got a seat. They're pretty crowded at times, especially around holidays.

A: Uh, I think you said 1-800-500-5500, right? I'll give them a call when I get home. Thanks a lot, Tyler.
