Meet Jade

Name: Jade
Occupation: Student
Employer: SOTA (School of the Arts)
Gets around by: Bus

Where do you live and where do you work?
I live behind TCC and I go to the Tacoma School of the Arts in downtown Tacoma.

How do you get there?
In the morning I take the 28 to school and going home I either take the 28 again or the 1.

How does it all add up? How much money or time do you save?
Taking the bus at certain times in the morning really helps me to be more organized and having a certain time to be at the bus stop and going home helps me to figure out what else I need to do afterwards.

What’s in it for you?
When I get on the bus it’s like a short break I get from school and anything else that is going on that is stressing me. I also get time to study for my classes and just listen to music.

Do you have any tips for people who may be trying these modes for the first time?
Be respectful to the bus drivers, they do a lot and put up with a lot of things as it is and we should try to make their day a bit easier. Share room on the bus also by moving aside any belongings for others.
