CASPER THE
COMMUTER

A cat has become such a well-known user of a
Devon bus service that its drivers know
where to let him off.

Casper the commuter has been queuing with other
passengers to get the number three service from
his home in Plymouth for months, bus
company First said.

He often sits in the queue and then quietly pads on
board and curles up on a seat for the ride.

Casper's owner Susan Finden, 55, picked him from
a rescue home in 2002. She said he had always been a
free spirit. She named the adventurous feline
after Casper the Friendly Ghost, as he has a
habit of wandering off.


A spokesman for First said that drivers had been
bussing Casper around for months, but Mrs Finden
said she had only just found out about his
use of public transport.
"He does love people,
and I don't know what the attraction
is but he loves big vehicles
like lorries and buses."


The drivers let him ride free with a
special Bus Puss as he is over
a certain age.
