The RUF commuter is quietly reading his morning newspaper and enjoying his breakfast.

He is reading about the political discussions  about the future of trains and busses.

More and more people fail to understand why the old systems are still subsidised, when the RUF alternatives are becoming increasingly popular.

The environmental arguments against the car are no longer valid. More and more car drivers have converted to RUF, which is even better than Public Transport when issues like pollution and energy consumtion are being debated.

The bus/train commuter is waiting at the bus stop.

It took him 30 minutes to wake up (25 min) and walk 200 m (5 min) to the bus stop. The waiting time at the bus stop is unpredictable, but usually it is 5 min.

He would have liked to bring a flower as a gift to one of his collegues, but it is inconvenient to bring it along when travelling by Public Transport.

He notices several of his neighbours passing the bus stop quietly driving a RUF. One of them even has two flowers in the RUF. Provocative - he thinks!
