gwangi and I are a one car family. Since he bikes to school there was no reason for us to have the expense of a second car and the money that we got from his car helped to pay off some debt.
This means I take the bus on occasion. I am lucky because the bus is pretty easy to take to work, though it takes about an hour. I have a mile walk at the end that doesn't have any sidewalks but I am getting used to the risk. Plus I wear a bright greenish yellow coat.
I used to take the bus to work everyday when I worked downtown. It is better now that I have a smart phone. This is so great! Basically I can read the paper while I am going to work without the mess of a paper. If I want to read a book I can! So awesome!
I would take the bus more but it is so expensive. I can take non-express buses to work but until the days are longer I'll be taking he express bus home because the lack of sidewalk is scary in the dark. Anyways, right now it costs me $5.25 a day to get to work in the bus. With gas at $3 it isn't worth it.

On the way back I take a different bus that is much closer to my office. This will be nice since it is going to be even hotter than.
