Riding the Bus

Well, I figured it would happen sooner or later with the exploding gas prices, so I shouldn't really be surprised that public bus fees will soon be going up here in Minneapolis. I really can't complain too much since $2.00 each way to and from work isn't all that bad. $4.00 a day beats having to drive into downtown, somehow secure parking and pray that it doesn't cost your left nut, and then plow through traffic on your way home.

I don't know how much public transit costs in other cities, but when I visited Seattle last year, I remember the buses not costing very much so maybe Minneapolis is expensive when it comes to mass transit, but I would think even if they raised prices to $2.50 each way I'd still consider it ok.
