Come on and take a free ride

Councilwoman Sandy Carmany is publicizing Greensboro's Dump the Pump campaign on her blog, the point of which is to get people out of their cars and into public transportation.

GTA is offering free trial passes, and I'm going to take them up on it.

Driving to work is expensive for me (because of parking); riding my scooter is cheaper (but not fun in the rain); walking is just a little too far (50 minutes).

If the bus can get me to work efficiently, I might think about dumping not just the pump, but one of my cars, too.

Good idea, and I'm all for decent public transportation, but I'd have to drive pretty far just to get to a bus stop! And then where would I park? Sigh. Oh well.

So there's no good bus service for Reedy Fork Ranch?

I've never seen a city bus or a city bus sign anywhere near here.

But you're in the city limits, right?

Does this mean I can have your scooter when I turn 16?

Yes, we're in the city limits, but not by much. Actually, you LEAVE the city limits and then re-enter them to get here.
