Riding the bus

Riding the bus to work has its pros and cons. Mostly pros. The bus is really convenient when a) your employer pays for your bus pass b) you live less than two miles from your work place and c) you don't want to pay upwards of $11 a day for parking.

At the distance I live from my work, it takes approximately the same amount of time to walk, bus or drive. Walking is a straight shot from here to there. The bus requires waiting for the bus and stopping every other block until I get to my stop. Driving requires morning city traffic and parking. 

My preference is walking though I will almost always take the bus home. I highly recommend the bus as a hugely economical option. Besides, it usually provides some entertainment value if not the least fodder for make believe stories about people you don't know.
