I took the bus to work.
This morning I had just over an eighth of a tank of gas. I drove 10 minutes to the nearest Park and Ride lot. Spent $1.25 and 30 minutes to get dropped off a block away from work. After work I reversed the process, picked up my car and drove home. I still have just over an eighth of a tank of gas.
Not only did I save gas and money, I listened to NPR on my headphones, read a chapter of "World War Z" and never felt the need to flip anyone off or yell at anyone.
I can cut my gas costs by 75%. I can go from my $40.00 a month covered parking garage to a $5.00 a month open lot. I can lower my car insurance. I can reduce the frequency of my oil changes. My tires will last longer. I can lower my blood pressure and my risk of a stroke. I can reduce the risk of getting carjacked, shot or shanked on Independence Avenue. I can mostly silence the alluring siren songs of the crack whores.
It's really not bad at all. I think the pros outweigh the cons. I think I'm sold.
