What's your commute like?
Maybe you crank up the A/C, put in a Yanni CD and zone out. Maybe you peruse the morning paper while on the express bus that stops just blocks from your home and office. Or maybe you leave frustrated tooth-marks on your steering wheel each day.
We want to hear your commuting story - no matter how terrible your lows or how blissful your highs. We can't read minds, so you're just going to have to spell it out for us:
Hundreds of commuters from locales far and near have already chimed in. User "Cantabrigian" bragged: "I adore my commute! 10 minutes by bicycle on a marked bike lane, or 15 minutes by foot, passing by convenient coffeeshops…This is one reason why I choose to live and work where I do." Jealous yet? Or, can you top that with your awesome commute?
On the flip side, Christine let out a little rage:
Ouch. If your commute's as lousy as Christine's - or, traffic forbid, worse - we want to hear you rage about your lousy commute!
Hearing stories like yours - the good, the bad, and the ugly - helps us flesh out what commuting in America is really like. And we're using the stories you write on MyCommuteSucks.org - and the groundswell of support we're seeing - to press home our message with Congress: let's turn our frustration into smart transportation solutions.
