So you think taking the bus won’t make a big difference in your life?
Try this easy test: Leave your car at home for just one month and take the bus. Add up the money you saved in parking fees, tolls and gas at the end of the month. Add up the time you saved being stuck in traffic jams, looking for a parking space and make a list of everything you did instead:
read a book
surfed the web
watched a movie
updated my Facebook status
tweeted my latest thoughts
posted a picture of my dog on instagram
listened to music (without being a safety hazard)
had a nice conversation with a sweet old lady
met a wonderful girl on the way to work
daydreamed while capturing the city’s beauty,
caught up on some sleep…
You name it. It’s amazing what you can accomplish with the freedom you experience by getting out from behind the steering wheel!
Now take the money you saved, go shopping at that store you discovered while surfing the web with the free Wi-Fi on the bus and buy something nice for your Aunt, your best friend or the girl you met.
Oh, and that smart move you made? It’s also good for your community:
Now that you’ve tested it for yourself, go around and tell everyone what you discovered about buses and coaches.
