I get the bus every day, to me it seems like the best way for me to get from home to university. Driving would be quicker although I’d have to pay for parking, and I do also like the idea of taking public transport rather than driving. Its nice if you meet someone you know or something like that. I work at a nursery and there was a really nice time when I met one of the little boys from nursery at the bus stop and we took the bus together, that totally made my morning, and it wouldn’t have happened if I had been driving.
I used to live in Kansas and there was just no way for me to get around without feeling like a burden on someone else or having the expense of the car, but here its so much easier to get around and the bus gives you a lot of freedom. I appreciate public transport here a lot more now.
