Name: Wendi Bundick
Occupation: Court clerk
Employer: Tacoma Municipal Court
Gets around by: Pierce Transit Buss
Live: Gig Harbor. Work: Tacoma
Get there: Drive < 1 mile to Kimball Drive Park & Ride, G.H., take Pierce Transit bus 102 Express to downtown Tacoma; bus drops me off at corner of 11th & Tacoma Ave S.., right outside the County-City Building.
How it adds up: Free bus pass from City of Tacoma = No gas, no Narrows Bridge tolls, no parking = $$$$$$ saved! I save at least $300/month. It costs me about an hour more a day in commute time, but I get almost 2 hours of reading time in, plus I treated myself to a Massage Envy membership, for being a good steward of the environment and saving money getting to and from work.
Tips: Be patient. It took me some time to get used to the sounds and smells of riding public transportation. Be courteous to other passengers and your driver. And be thankful for having the options available!
