OK, even a hard-hearted bastard like me –who takes every opportunity to point out PART’s shortcomings—- can’t ignore this story:

Travis Pierce and Tamel Evans have found their way to a wedding chapel through a PART Express bus.

Five years ago, Pierce and Evans met on the black-and-red bus while making the same 18-mile commute between Greensboro and Winston-Salem.

At first they exchanged a few words and glances, then spent months in conversation sitting next to each other. They started dating a little more than four years ago and will marry this spring, all thanks to the power of mass transit.

“We consider it as a blessing,” Evans told The High Point Enterprise. “You never know where you may find love at, and we found it on the PART bus.”

Here’s wishing the future Mr. and Mrs. Pierce a long and happy marriage.
