#0076: Public Transportation

What’s that, you say? You don’t have a car? You can’t afford your own vehicle?  You have places you need to be but don’t have any way of getting there on your own?

Fear not, my friends! You can still get to where you need to be in a safe and somewhat timely manner by using PUBLIC TRANSPORTATION!

There are so many advantages to using public transportation:

1. You don’t have to spend hundreds of dollars each month to upkeep a vehicle.  In most cities you can get a monthly bus/train pass for under $100. Best of all, it’s unlimited, meaning you only have to pay that ONE time -no gas stops or vehicle fix-up charges for YOU!

2. You get a wide variety of options.  Train, bus, taxi, horse buggy, trolley – the type of vehicle you can use to get you to where you’re going can vary from day-to-day depending on your needs!

3. You don’t have to rush to get where you’re going.  Using public transportation oftentimes means you have to leave earlier than you would were you driving a vehicle.  The upside: it gives you a chance to relax, read a book, listen to music, meet new people, and observe things out the window you would normally miss if you were the one driving.

Which reminds me…

4. YOU DON’T HAVE TO DRIVE.  I live in L.A., and driving out here can be quite stressful.  I say, leave it to the men and women who drive the buses and trains to deal with all that – I just want to sit back, relax, and enjoy the ride

Ah, public transportation… now THAT’S something to be thankful for!
