The Bus

The times they are a-changin’.

This post seems to be older than 16 years—a long time on the internet. It might be outdated.

Last year, the Student Body at Mines voted on bus passes and the initiative to fund them was passed overwhelmingly. Thus, I’ve been trying to make it a point to ride the bus whenever I can.

I usually just walk to school. It’s a short 10-15 minute walk, depending where I campus I need to be. However, I’ve been trying to find out of riding the bus would work.

Well, today I finally say down and figure it out. There are two regular buses that literally run right by my place (the stop is right outside my bedroom window): the 16 and the 17. They stop about three minutes from each other at :44 and and :47 past the hour and then again at :14 and :17 past the hour (every 30 minutes or so). It’s about a 3 minute ride from there to the where I get off (about four stops later). It saves about 10 minutes of walking and makes sure I get to class on time, so I’m going to try and make it a regular thing.
