Why I ride the bus

May 24, 2016

People use public transportation for all kinds of reasons—whether by necessity or by choice. Benefits of riding the bus include saving money, reducing fuel consumption, skipping parking and traffic troubles, and having free time to read a book or watch the world go by. Ask a bus rider why they ride, and you’ll get a variety of answers. Here are a few:

  • While the majority of people are driving and have to pay attention to the traffic, I get to kick back and enjoy the ride!
    –Anthony Gradert
  • I was a little intimidated by the bus system at first, but the bus drivers really helped me out!

    –Erica Geist
  • We are a one car family with both adults working and two children. No matter where I need to go, the T gets me there!

    –Sarah Galyon

Bus riders take more than 3 million trips in Lawrence each year. If you are one of them, send us a message and tell us why you ride! We’d love to hear from you.
