I found this comparison of the cost of driving, and the bus, interesting. This comparison only calculates the cost of fuel. It doesn’t take into consideration the cost of repairs, oil, and insurance. Not to mention tickets and other hassles.
I just found out that I qualify for 1/2 fare, which is a good deal. The buses are not that crowded, but I have only taken the bus twice. The bus goes clear up and down Independence Avenue. There are many businesses up and down the Avenue, so this is a good deal, that I did not realize was there for me all along.
This is eye opening. I have my bicycle, I could put it on the bus rack, if I wanted. Yep.
