The video begins with the horse grazing by the side of the road, near the bus stop. As a bus pulls it, it calmly walks up to it and tries to get inside, but the driver must have noticed it, because he quickly shut the door. Not that the horse minded it all that much.
“According to some social media users from St. Petersburg, there is a stable next to the bus stop and it’s not surprising to see horses in the area,” Moscow Times says. It also notes that most commenters found the incident hilarious, which of course they did. They cracked jokes about this being Russia, the land where everything is possible, and lamented having lived the day when one horsepower was parked in the wrong place and could not hitch a ride with its ilk.
That said, the horse had the right idea: public transportation is a good and sometimes more time-efficient way of getting to your destination, with minimum impact on the quality of air and overall traffic in the area. It’s also cheaper, but the downside is that you have to share the same space with plenty of other people. The horse wouldn’t have minded that, but not the same goes for the other passengers on the bus.
