Right, Addie. I crack the window so she can sniff the wind but stick her nose out.

I also worry about bugs flying into her eyes. So, she gets to sniff.

That's true. Maybe a training session for little kids on unbuckling and evacuating the bus in the event of a crash would be good as well.

Are there seat belts on subways and trains?

No. Although if I use The Ride my scooter is secured and I have on a seat belt. The Ride is a service provided by public transportation for the handicap.
