I don't use buses here, but I did go look up where the route was. I would have to walk a few blocks and they don't run too often, but it is available. I am also not working full time. I've used public transportation a lot - maybe because I lived thru the shortages in the 70s. Sometimes it was not very convenient at all, but I did it anyway. Examples: 1) I had a job downtown that was about a 7 minute drive. I walked 4 blocks (in heat, snow or rain) to catch a bus that took an hour to make the trip (zig zagged a lot) and then it got me to work about 15 minutes early - the next bus got me there 5 minutes late. Being 5 minutes late was not acceptable. I was poor and didn't have a car so this really was my only option. 2)I lived very close to work (about 3 miles) but took the bus. I had to walk several blocks and in the winter literally had to wait in blizzards. The crowds on the bus were SO bad that sometimes I couldn't get off at my stop. 3)I used a van pool in one city. They picked me up first at 6:15 and then had to pickup another 8 people (lots of zig zagging) and I got to work about fifteen minutes early so the rest of the passengers could get to another building and be on time for 7:30. If I'd driven my car and left at 6:15 I'd have been there in 20 minutes. 4)I drove to a park and ride slot. It added at least 45 minutes to my commute. 5)My last job I was only 2 miles away and often walked unless I needed to use my car at lunch for business or was ill. These were all in different cities. My car gets good gas mileage, and I'm not sure I would save any money on gas vs. the bus, but it would save energy. Have you thought about how much you are willing to sacrifice (time and convenience) to save energy or money?
