Do I use the Bus?

I wrote this a long time ago, and I would like to be able to use the Bus or Train here in Ottawa, but the system will not work for me. When this was written, it really didn’t work, and I tried to use it, but to no avail.

In a word, no!

I will confess that I am driving a beater to work, but that is mostly because the bus service in Ottawa is very tuned to folks who go downtown in the morning and come back at night. I live in the south and commute to the west of Ottawa. I did take the bus for a while, and it felt very frugal, but my job then became psychotic for hours, so I decided to buy a friends “beater” and have been driving it ever since.

I give out advice, but I don’t always follow it. Yes, if I worked downtown, or lived in Montreal or Toronto I would take mass transit, just because those cities are set up to not want you to drive!

At least figure out WHY you don’t take the bus (if you can rationalize spending the money on a second car, at least you have thought about it).
