Usually I take the city bus about twice a month. This week (and it's only Tuesday), I have already a taken it twice. There really is no excuse as it goes right by my house - at for getting to work. So, I'm trying to limit my use of the car. The kids are walking to and from school, and we're about to dust off the bikes (come on, Spring!).
Take the city bus - get to know the routes. It's a great social experience, as well, to see who rides the bus. Now I'd like to know if there are smaller busses we can use - why do they have to be so big and high? Perhaps if we all use them more they won't seem so big.
