Bus to work

[Bus tickets]

On Saturday I drove my car for the first time in a week. Partly because I didn't much fancy sliding around in the snow again, and partly because I like the environmental benefits of public transport, I took the bus to work.

There's only one bus a day that runs from my town to my place of work but its timing is perfect: it gets me to work at half eight and makes me leave my desk at five. Running to a schedule has been good for me. The surprising thing is that out of the four thousand people who work at my office, only one other caught this bus.

By Friday I was feeling quite settled in the routine. The total cost was £15 - somewhat more expensive than driving - but not so much to put me off.

Little car: you might have to learn to amuse yourself during the week.
