21-year-old Brittnii met her boyfriend Joseph when they were in high school. “He was different from the other guys I’d known,” says Emily. “He is a real friend and has always stood by me despite all the drama I go through. He used to catch the 5 a.m. bus from his house in Ontario to where I lived in Pomona, just so we could spend the day together. We’d take the bus on to go to the mall or out to a movie or just hang out. We’ve been together for 4 years now.”
The young couple currently lives together in Ontario. Joseph works at a warehouse and Brittnii is a full time mom to their 1-year-old daughter Emily. “Of course she was born on December 18—the anniversary of when we first got together,” laughs Brittnii. “She’s very nosey and loves to explore—it’s hard to get her to sit still for a second!”
The couple are still Omnitrans regulars, and little Emily has fun taking the bus with her parents.
Who knew that falling in love on public transit could have such a great ending!
