As someone who lives and works in town, I am very appreciative of the bus system. It has allowed us to move to being a one-car family, avoid paying insurance and repairs and ultimately has saved us thousands of dollars per year.
Having a reliable bus system in town is a big plus for me. I don’t think enough people use it regularly – they rely on their cars more than they should.
I think it’s worth being a tiny bit uncomfortable or out of sorts while you figure out the bus system to get to enjoy the dozens of benefits.
