I SEPTA Because I Care
My name’s Cory, and I drive an SUV.
That feels good to get off my chest.
My girlfriend Suzanne got me hooked on SEPTA. Previously, my experiences have been limited to, “I can’t pick you up, can you take the bus?” or “Our car broke down, how are you getting to school?” I’ve always had the luxury to drive wherever I needed to go. But, after rising gas prices, global warming, and my broken gas gauge beeping because it thought I had no gas, I figured it was time to take the plunge into public transportation. I bought a Monthly TransPass for June.
After taking trips to and from my school’s campus, a trip to University City, a really fun trip to Wilmington, and a future trip to restaurants around the city (gas money = food money in the grand scheme of things), my TransPass is almost half-way paid for, and it’s only 9 days into June. My car hasn’t moved from its primo parking spot directly in front of my rowhome, I’ve saved a lot of money on gas, and all this walking from station to station and stop to stop makes me feel good.
This wasn’t such a bad idea after all.
