I am a total convert. How many of you that have access to public transportation take advantage of it? Denver has the most amazing and cheap public transportation system. I live 3 miles from work and if it drive, even through residential neighborhoods there is a stop at every corner and school buses and other things to slow me down. It's not a bad drive but it does take 20 minutes. One of my perks from work is a parking permit and without that permit parking would be at least 10 a day if I get in very early and get into a cheap spot.
I finally broke down and rode the bus on Monday because the Rockies were playing a big game right down the street from our office and I figured the afternoon downtown traffic would be horrible and I wasn't wrong. So I rode the bus from home to work and back. HOW EASY. 25 minutes from my door to my desk. I actually bought a monthly pass and plan to use it every day. $54.00 for unlimited local rides and since that means anywhere in Denver I want to go it is a real bargain. I read or visit with people on the bus both ways and it is a really relaxing stress free way to commute. I am totally hooked.
