Another one rides the bus

I did ride the bus downtown for a dinner of porterization tonight. The weather was unsettled with waves of thunderstorms rolling through and I didn’t want to get caught by rain/lightning halfway downtown.

The 31 is the best bus to get downtown. It runs up and down Huron and Dexter and turns around at Wagner. It stops on the outgoing trip and then again incoming and those stops are eight minutes apart. 5:40 outgoing and 5:48 incoming. The bus was ten minutes late this afternoon (I have an app for that). I schlepped over to the 5:48 *incoming* stop at something like 5:45. I checked the app and the bus was still schlepping up Huron/Dexter so I hoofed it across the street and caught it on the outgoing run. What the heck, I can read for a while.

When we got downtown I pulled the cord for a stop at the Main/Huron stop. There was a lot of construction going on down there so the bus driver could not drop me off at that exact stop. We were just past the Lurie Terrace stop at that point and he asked if he could drop me off there. Yes, yes, he could. So I got off just west of First Street and scurried up and through the Ashley parking lot. It was a wonderful night.

Love y’all, KW

    I always get nervous taking the bus or light rail because I don’t know how to do it. Taking a bus from airports and the train from Grand Central to Poughkeepsie have been somewhat stressful. Your trip sounds much more relaxed. 🙂
