The Bus is Not a Trash Can

I made a bold step today. I used public transportation to go to and from work. Using public transportation took more of my time, which I passed on the bus by reading or listening to music. I was apprehensive about riding the bus, although it’s something I’ve considered for a couple of years. I drove to a Park and Ride station about 5.5 miles from home, then back home, but I drove less miles than a one way trip to work. I’ll do it again.

When there were only two passengers left on the bus, I took these pictures which dampened my experience.

The newspapers aren’t that bad, as another commuter may pick them up, but obviously no one did as the bus headed back to the terminal after dropping me at the Park and Ride. We just can’t get away from plastic bottles and McDonald’s bags. I don’t understand it.
