Al Brown rides the bus to school at Evergreen State College-Tacoma, Wednesday, Feb. 24, 2016. (GRANT HINDSLEY, seattlepi.com)

The bus is a means to a better life for Al Brown. Brown is homeless but not hopeless. He has been homeless for years but that has not determined his outlook on life. Brown is a college student who depends on the bus to move him towards a better future. Whitney Henry-Lester brings us Al’s dispatch alongside Seattle PI photographer, Grant Hindsley. Grant spent the day with Al and captured his commute in photos.
