I Heart the Bus


By

Reasons to ride the bus…

Want a more relaxed way of life?  Ride the bus; I found that once I started using the bus, I stopped over-scheduling.

Tired of fighting the traffic?  Ride the bus; I no longer care if it is snowing, or someone is driving slow in front of me, or cut me off, I will be at my destination within +/- 5 minutes.

Can’t find the time to exercise?  Ride the bus; I have found that I can get at least 45 minutes of exercise everyday. This includes walking to and from the bus stop, and then walking to lunch also.

Can’t find the time to read anymore?  Ride the bus; I read for 30-45 minutes a day.

Can’t find the time to talk to your child? Ride the bus; I have learned all sorts of things going on in my daughter’s life, just by having the time with nothing to do but to listen.

Can’t find a way to reduce your carbon footprint? Ride the bus; in one year you will save 200 gallons of gasoline, or 9.1 pounds of hydrocarbons.

Still need a reason to ride the bus?  How about eliminating the frustration of finding a parking spot, or no more parking tickets? Or how about people watching, or talking with people, or noticing that new building going up?

You get the idea… I love riding the bus!
