Our town is not real big. But it is big enough to have public transportation. Free public transportation, at that! Oh yes! There are 2 bus routes to choose from. Between the two you can get pretty much anywhere you would care to go in this little town of ours. We love it!
Yesterday Miss Monkey, Little Man, and I needed do to some birthday shopping. So instead of driving in our van, we took the bus.
The closest bus stop to our house is just a sign next to the sidewalk. It works well, but is not the most enjoyable on a rainy day. So we walked an extra block and a half and were able to sit in a nice covered bus stop.
Oh, and yes, we were wearing coats. Spring has been very slow in coming to this neck of the woods.
We read an old Family Circus comic book during the ride. They don't always get it, but they usually like the pictures.
