The Metro 81


Blogging from the bus. There's a line that stops right near our place in Eagle Rock and stops two blocks from my office. The bus was basically empty yesterday. Today, it's pretty full. Also, today the video screens have the sound turned on, which is sort of annoying. Still, this is much more fun than driving.

How long does the commute take? Bus vs. Car?

It takes about 35 minutes (give or take some time waiting for the bus -- though it runs pretty often at rush hour times). By car it takes about 30 minutes, with the spots of traffic. Without traffic, it takes like 20 minutes.

Hey, way to go! You're the first person I've heard of not driving to work in LA.

hh: Sadly, they play crappy annoying shit on the fancy video screens. It's like the bus videos on "Total Recall".
