Sometimes it feels like I’m just coasting through life, but then I realize that I’m always walking, talking, and thinking about work.
That’s why we’re out here, right? Not that we’re making bad business decisions, we’re just not moving as quickly as we used to. But more specifically, we’re taking the approach of the average person who’s been traveling for a few days to six weeks. We’re still walking, but we’re talking for longer periods of time now. That’s because our commute is actually quite long, and we can’t just wait until the next day or two to get moving again.
A lot of people have this idea of taking a vacation like a “business trip”, but the reality is that you actually travel a lot more than a business trip. If you consider a 4-hour drive or a 16-hour round trip you are probably talking about hundreds of miles a day, and often hours a day.
If you’re really serious about getting to work on time, I would highly recommend that you take public transport. That way you’re not driving, and you don’t have to get off and on again. As it turns out, many people are too lazy to take public transport, but I would bet that a lot of people would be quite happy to take a car to work if they could get the timing right.
To make sure you dont miss your bus or light rail, you need to plan a route in advance. It helps to have a map or a planner so you know what the best times are to take the routes. If you find yourself running late, however, you can always use the bus schedules and times to get a start.
If youre not taking public transport to work, your only option is a car, and the best thing for you would be to find a carpool partner and get a decent price. The best way to get a carpool partner is to use a service like Craigslist. The person making the carpool can then help you figure out the best route so that you dont miss your bus or light rail.
You can find carpooling rates for different types of vehicles at the city websites of some of the places you can use for commuting. For example, Seattle will have the best carpool rates in the country, with most rates running from $5 per hour to $60 per hour. It can be a lot more expensive to drive to New York City (where most of the carpooling happens), but the city’s public transportation is generally better.
There are also websites where you can get a list of public transportation routes. It’s really helpful when you’re looking at a city’s public transportation options to know where to cut your commute.
Yes, we should all be using public transportation to get to work. Ive actually considered it myself and it sounds really great. However, there are many disadvantages to using public transportation: People tend to have less patience for people using the bus and subway. The subway is a lot more crowded and uncomfortable than the buses. People tend to drive slower in rush hour when the subway’s crowded.
People are only going to use public transportation if they are getting home early. And because the commuter rail system has such a high ridership, there are only so many places to go. If youre not going to be home early, why bother using the subway or bus. The best strategy is to work your way around where the trains are crowded and the bus and subways are empty. The bus is the worst because it is slow and the wait time is long.
