Gets around by: Bus and Bike
Where do you live and where do you work?
I live in Seattle, work in Tacoma
How do you get there?
I bike to the bus in Seattle, I ride bus, then bike again from downtown Tacoma to the office. I’ve been doing this for about 15 years. I also blog about it at: www.greencommuting.blogspot.com
How much money or time do you save?
I save a lot of money. Though it is a longer commute regarding time, it’s stress-free commute; I’m either cycling or enjoying a book or magazine on the bus.
What’s in it for you?
I dislike driving and I believe in public transportation.
Do you have any tips for people who may be trying this mode for the first time?
a. There’s no such thing as bad weather, just bad clothing.
b. Don’t be a snob about riding the bus. I share the bus with old and young, well-off and not so well-off. It’s the future.
