Since 2009, I have commuted to work down 15-501 and Erwin Road on a GoTriangle bus. Though I advocate for public transit and its social justice and environmental benefits, my ride to work has been far from a sacrifice. In fact, it has been quite liberating. Door-to-door, it’s actually quicker than driving because I need not troll for a difficult to find parking space. I also save about $250 a month in car-related expenses. Taking transit to work gives me time I wouldn’t otherwise have, time I can devote to work or just devote to lowering my blood pressure; traffic congestion looks much better from the bus than from the driver’s seat of my car.
