Public transportation is something that I have never ever taken. Ok, that isn’t entirely true, I mean I have taken the bus before and of course have taken my fair share of cabs, but overall, I have been quite attached to my car. To say that public transportation in Seattle is horrible, is really an understatement. I tried to embrace it, I tried to commute to work by the bus, but when it took me over an hour and a half and multiple buses and waiting, I said, I don’t think so.
So far here, I have taken two different train lines – the red line and the green line, a bus, and a cab. The red line is still of course, my favorite. 🙂 Being that it is red and has stops at some great places – like Harvard Square (Harvard, the Curious George bookstore, Peet’s Coffee, the Coop) and Porter Square (great independent bookstore – Porter Square Books and a totally great hardware store – I love power tools!).
All this to say, I love taking the T here and don’t even mind taking the bus. It feels good not to have to worry about getting gas, wondering if I have enough windshield wiper fluid, or even if my tires have enough air. I know it has only been 2 days, but still – at least I have a positive enough outlook so far. It is the little victories I suppose.
Off to make good use of my Charlie card and see some new sights…
