New Commuting Strategy

I've started to take the bus to work in San Francisco. This approach has several advantages:

1) No Driving - Since the bus stops a block away from our house, I no longer have to drive to the train station. In addition to wear-and-tear on the car, I also save on parking fees and gasoline.

2) Drop Off Point - The bus terminal is also one block from my office. As a result, my overall commuting time is reduced slightly.

3) Comfort - I can always get a seat on the bus. This is not usually the case on the train.

This will bring down my monthly driving to around 50 miles a month, down from about 100. No Toyota Prius here, just good old-fashioned frugality.
