I appreciate public transportation more and more each year. I would rather read, Facebook, blog, eavesdrop, plan my next vacation, listen to music, question peoples' fashion choices or gaze vacantly into space than pay attention on I 25. Five years of commuting via light rail has saved me big bucks on gas and extended the life of my car.
If I'm flying out for a weekend I usually leave from work. Cheaper than a taxi or a shuttle and less hassle than driving? RTD Sky Ride. A whopping $11 from Market St Station ($7 for me since I have a monthly pass) and I can sit on a comfortable air conditioned coach and tune out. An hour later, after waving to the iconic demon horse statue, I'm at departures.
Today I'm taking a page from the rest of the world and creating a parody of "Call Me Maybe."
I just left work
and I'm too lazy
To drive myself so
Sky Ride baby....
