You would expect people to forget wallets, money, bags, cell phones and mp3 players on the public transport system. You, however, would be surprised how many people would forget other items, such as these.


1. Violin:

In December of 2011 the Toronto Sun reported a reunion between $170,000 USD violin and its owner. She forgot the violin in an overhead department of a regional commuter bus. The instrument is 176 years old and is given on loan to a Boston student. The violin was found by bus cleaners where the student left it.


2. False Teeth

Vancouver’s 1130 News reported false teeth being lost over the holidays on the TransLink. Many people who lose these items may not realize that they’ve lost it on the public transit system. It is also hard to track owner, given the circumstances.


3. Cat:
