My thoughts are prayers to those affected by the earthquake in Japan and the surrounding areas.

What Is Kiss and Ride? Part 2

I created this blog/column to discuss dating and life. The main point of this column is to be an advice column (think Dear Abby or Dan Savage) but with a twist of my own. In addition, I will also provide my own anecdotes and stories as we progress.

Questions? Use the widget in the sidebar to ask me questions (subject optional).  Don’t hold back. Ask me anything you want an answer to and I will answer to the best of my ability to help! I will reply with the question in the post with my best response.

Please use an alias or let me know you don’t want your real name used.

What Is Kiss and Ride?

n. a passenger drop-off area near a rapid transit station; the act of using such an area as intended. Also as verb phrase.
Editorial Note: Often attributive.
Etymological Note: From the 1950s-era urban planning vision of wives dropping off their husbands at train or bus stations each workday morning.
First appeared in the Los Angeles Times January 1956 issue.
“Transit Plan Agreement Smoked Out” p. 4: I believe we are going to have co-ordination between automobiles and rapid transit.…It will be park and ride or kiss and ride—where the wife takes the husband to the rapid transit line and kisses him good-by.
