Or the unparalleled joy of getting on a municipal public bus.

A video from the City of Edmonton wants to know if you're ❄️😎 COOL😎❄️ enough to ride the bus.

Surely there are few in this world worthy of such prestige, but nonetheless the video goes on to espouse the fleet's remarkable amenities.

Like "personal climate control."

An Edmonton Transit System spokesperson told Metro "We're not only trying to get across some tongue-in-cheek points about what it's like to take the bus … but if we can also spark some people's interest and curiosity about taking the bus, there's actual tangible benefits city wide."

Emphasis ours.

And who wouldn't be curious after this.
