I’m on my way to DIA on a city bus. Once I get to DC, I’m going to take the Metro to the train station and take a train to where I stay west of Gaithersburg. I will be using my bicycle and/or the train for commuting while I’m in Maryland.
Using bicycle/public transportation will save me about $400 on this trip, and generally saves me about $3,000 a year in other expenses.
I’ve been in Boulder a month, and it has been fantastic. A beautiful place, full of interesting people, with bike trails and buses everywhere. I don’t ever have to use my car for anything. I’d like to eventually get completely car free.
