Before moving to Austin, I lived in Boston without a car for five years. Taking public transportation became a necessity for me in Boston and I wanted to continue that lifestyle in Austin.

Why do you like taking the bus now? What is the best part of your commute?

I like having time to unplug on the bus before/after work. No road rage!

What advice do you have for other downtown employees who are considering changing their commute? My advice would be to weigh the money you’re currently spending on parking and gas against the price of a monthly bus/rail pass. I would have to pay nearly $200 a month to park in the garage provided by my work. For me, the price difference is so great that I don’t consider driving as a plausible alternative.
