Feb. 17 (UPI) -- The bus operator in a British city shared a photo of a swan utilizing public transit by taking a ride atop a city bus.

Reading Buses tweeted a photo showing the swan riding on one of the operator's buses in Reading, Berkshire.


"Flying is so overrated these days," Reading Buses quipped on Twitter. "And with £2 [$2.41] single fares on all our buses, even swans know that bus is best! Don't be a silly goose -- duck into one of our buses today!"

The operator said in a follow-up tweet that wildlife charity Swan Lifeline was contacted and collected the swan to be taken in for a veterinary check-up and observation.

"Thanks to everyone who helped assist with our unexpected passenger today," Reading Buses tweeted.
