Great article! Thanks for sharing! Everyone in Chicago is a class act!

Thanks for sharing this! My husband Billy and I were at the convention. We are from Chicago so just for fun, at the meet and greet, Billy showed each band member his CTA (Chicago Transit Authority) card that is used to ride the subways, El (elevated) trains and buses.

Robert asked "How much is it now?"  He was surprised that it is $2.25 now. He said "$2.25? Really?"  Maybe we planted a seed.... Billy asked if it would get him on *The bus*.... No of course, but they all laughed. I think Robert, Lee and Walt enjoyed it the most. Walt laughed and commented that it looked different, made out of paper back then. It was fun to share it with them. Thanks again! That made my day!

That is by far, one of THE best stories I have ever read about the band. Awesome, really awesome.. either making music, on stage, or out and about, these guys have never failed to impress. Just a question: what would you ask if you are on the bus/train/plane and all of a sudden any of the 9 guys is sitting next to you? I'd probably start babbling incoherently...

Omar, how about, "Can I buy you dinner"?  Then you have the possibility to chat for a couple of hours!  :-D

Thank you so much Karen, for posting and sharing this article.  I guess the last thing he expected was to be greeted on board by name.  Well done !!

I just noticed that the Sun Metro drivers's last name is Novoa. Pretty close to Di Novo. What are the chances?... Things that make you go hmmmm..... I'm just sayin'

They missed the opportunity to say that he was on the bus on Tuesday afternoon -- at around 25 or 6 to 4:00...

But then again, does anybody really know what time it was?

Hey Robert, how about a city to city bus tour with the band busking at bus stops throughout the US and Europe!!!! Only kidding, it's a great story - not being too grand to take the bus. Here in the UK, in London it's possible to regularly spot the odd rock star/celebrity on the Tube like, Chris Martin,  Paul McCartney or Noel Gallagher. Robert's in good company as a true promoter of public transport. Rock on!  

Karen,

Thanks for sharing.   What a great story!  

Karen thank you very much for sharing, bye.

I have to wonder if, while he was walking down the street that day, either a 'pretty lady' stopped to say her diamond watch had stopped cold dead OR man went up to him and asked him about the time... I just hope he wasn't pushed and shoved by people while on that bus... (had to jump on the opportunity to referrence one of THE best RL tunes)

hey bus driver i'm gettin oh there....hold it.......Thanks alot..

ok..So im thinking Stevie Wonder...
