Bus Rider
September 14, 2005

I rode the bus to work today! We're no longer in North Van, so it's only one zone: $2.25. With parking floating around $10 a day, and traffic being a pain in the ass around Burrard @ Hastings it only makes sense. Gas prices aren't really a big deal, as I only have to fill up once every 2.5 weeks or so, but prices aren't going down anytime soon.

The SFU (135) bus stops 2 minutes from our place and then drops me off 2 minutes from the office. Aside from the quick walk the bus is just as fast as driving. It's a direct bus, and has very few stops between Burrard station and Commercial Drive.

I doubt that I will take the bus everyday, as I still have other contracts that require me to drive from place to place, and various other excuses, but I'm going to make an effort to take it whenever I can.

I'm still browsing Craigslist for a decent cheap bike, so hopefully there will be a "Bike Rider" post someday soon.
