Bus Riders Unite

For the last few months I've been unable to drive my car and have taken the local bus system in town everywhere I need to go.

I just wanted to know if anyone else is a daily public transportation/bus rider like myself!
Don't be shy...

If I could, I would ride the bus or a train to work and school.

I relied on public transportation for about a period of five years. It can be pretty rough. The buses actually showing up would be so unpredictable I'd have to be at the stop an hour early just to ensure I get to work on time. I hope you have a lot of patience Philk, you're gonna need it.

I take the train/subway/bus and walk to most places

I enjoy it, and sometimes there are cute conductors, drivers, and fellow passengers too

I take the mbta(bus and train) everywhere. I've been doing it since I was 16-17 years old.

It's not so bad. Yeah, I do have to show up way to early before work because I get on one bus and transfer to another. If they don't match up, wellp, I'm out of luck and 30 minutes pass till the next one.

But $10 a week compared to $30 for gas isn't so bad

Yes, mass transit all the way. $76/month for an unlimited MetroCard gets me to school, back home, and wherever I want to go. Sure the bus service stinks (especially in the privately owned ones) and they never come til an hour later and the line's all the way around a street corner. Don't get me started!

But yes, it's much cheaper than gas and I don't have to worry whether I'll get a parking space on campus or not.

We have a great bus service in my town.
Stops at end of my street several times a day and goes to my job.
I don't take it much, but is nice to have when I don't have a car.

I'm still a kid, so bus and train unless I'm running late in which case taxi.
