The bus paused at a stop, opened its doors and a horse started to get on board. No telling why it was walking around free — or where it wanted to go.

RACHEL MARTIN, HOST:

Good morning. I'm Rachel Martin. Public transit certainly has its drawbacks - overcrowding, loud talkers, manspreading. Commuters on a bus in St. Petersburg, Russia, almost had to deal with a problem even worse. Their bus paused at a stop, opened its doors, and a horse started to get on board. No telling why it was walking around free or where it wanted to go. The driver was able to put a stop to all the horsing around and close the doors before anyone could get hurt.
