The Wheels on the Hubs Go Round and Round
Welcome to the HubMob Conveyance Co. Here at HCC, we pride ourselves on providing readers with the most interesting and entertaining hubs about transportation there is. You might even say they're moving.
Our HubMobsters drive a mean HubMob, too. They write their hub hearts out all week long to make sure that there's a variety of different articles available. Basically, if it deals with any kind of transit, it's in here. So, the title is a play on words, though I didn't think of it when I chose a title. Our HubMobsters convey information about transportation.....so it's a conveyance. Get it?
Alright, you can stop rolling your eyes, now. Besides, the groaning is hurting my ears. Just start reading (to get away from me) and then please be kind enough to leave our HubMobsters some feedback on their work. Thanks.
On with the HubMob!
