For years I lived in Stanstead, Quebec, right on the border with Derby Line. When we became a one-car family a few years back, getting to work at Northeast Kingdom Human Services in Derby suddenly became an issue. Wake my spouse up to drive me in early? Well, maybe...But right up the street in Derby Line, across from US Customs, is an RCT bus stop. Just a two minute walk from my house! (well, depending upon any interrogation delay at Customs). Always punctual, always friendly, driver and passengers, and right to my front door at work, also a regular stop. Thank you RCT!
