Where do you live and where do you work?
I live in Stadium and work downtown–and let me tell you that the Tacoma hills aren’t as bad as they seem.
How do you get there?
Usually by bus, but bike when the sun shines! And I do hop in my trusty Honda when I have meetings all over Pierce County or have to carry lots of gardening equipment to and from work.
How does it all add up?
I don’t save much time, but I do save on gas and parking which adds up. And also gym memberships–let’s have a moment of silence for all of those stuck in traffic on their way to spinning class!
What’s in it for you?
Biking and busing are my preferred modes of transportation because it gives me that little buffer before work without the stress of driving or finding a parking spot. Biking in the cool morning air is better than a cup of coffee.
