From Point A to Point B


It is long past my bedtime as I try and write this post.  I have been wracking my overtired brains, wondering what was Today’s Perfect Moment.  There were lots of good moments today, but I have been having a hard time choosing the Perfect one to share with you.

Luckily, as I was brushing my teeth, it came to me.  Something has changed on my bus rides.  I still see lots of construction equipment littering the roadway, but there don’t seem to be as many delays.  The bus seems to be getting from point A to point B (point A being my stop, and point B being the final stop….or vice versa) a lot faster and smoother.

If you’ve never commuted, it might be hard to understand how substantial this all is.  On a typical commute, one little hiccup can lead to huge amounts of time wasted.  You can hear the whole busload of passengers groan when someone seems to having trouble with the automated ticket machine.  Having to wait while a cement truck backs up across the bus path is so much worse by factors of ten.

I doubt the construction is over, but I will celebrate this lull as long as I get home a few minutes earlier.

    When winter season is over construction season begins. In my little corner of SW Etobicoke what should take 15 minutes to get from my house to wherever takes double that time now because every single freaking street is under construction. 😛

  2. Traffic is tragic and construction is constriction. Both stink. We have it bad here in Austin. Even on a bike as I am, it’s a factor. I’m.sure out buses suck in comparison to yours I Toronto. (I visited there once but out group drive so probably didn’t use transit.) Anyway, happy commuting! Do you ever try multi modal – bus one way, bike back?
