I've looked for this info online but haven't had any luck in finding what I need. So this goes out to those of you who a) were there at the time, and b) weren't too stoned to remember how things were. My setting is a decent-sized American college town (pop. 50,000 or so) in the mid-1970s. Do you remember what taxi service was like then? How long would someone have to wait for a cab on a nice Saturday evening in mid-May (not during Graduation)? Orrrr . . . did your college town have bus service back then? Did it run on Saturday nights? If so, for how late? I've got my MC involved in a fatal argument at the apartment of her soon-to-be-ex-boyfriend. Neither of them have cars, she lives at least a mile and a half away, she's wearing shoes that aren't suitable for walking, and I have to get her home, preferably uncrippled. I was intending to have her get there in a taxi (escorted by the boyfriend) if the evening had gone well. But now that it hasn't, I don't want to make her wait too long at the boyfriend's until her cab comes-- too much dead time for me to fill. And I need him to still be in the room with her when she leaves--she's mad, he isn't, just thinks she's making too big a deal of the issue and thinks they should make up-- so she can get off a parting shot. So about how long would she have to wait? Or could she reasonably catch a bus on a Saturday evening in such a time and place? Thanks!
