Normally this space is used for talking about transit news in the Triangle or cool stories from other parts of the nation and the globe.
Today, instead, I just wanted to share a short and sweet thought about commuting with transit.
This morning I opened my door to head out to work and immediately though,
When did I teleport to Chicago?
The cold was a smack in the face that us here in North Carolina just aren’t ok with.
I knew I needed to drive this morning instead of jumping on the bus so I’d parked my car where the sun would hit it.
Still. So. Frigid. at 8:30am this morning.
It takes me about 15 minutes to drive to work and only 30 to ride the bus.
I normally walk just a few streets to my DATA stop, transfer at Durham Station over to the 700 and then enjoy a peaceful ride straight to the Triangle Transit offices where I smile and wave at everyone stuck in their cars.
But this morning this morning I was cold, stuck in slow-moving traffic, and watching my breath fill up my car. All I could think about was how cozy the buses are during this weather.
I’m off to do it all over again on my drive home but I hope you find our buses to be a comforting, warm way for you to travel and I hope I see you there tomorrow.
