Choose your own adventure
A) A 5-minute bus ride, followed by a 13-minute train ride, followed by a 10-minute walk.
B) A 30-minute bus ride, followed by a 7-minute shuttle ride, which lands you practically on the doorstep of your office.
Option A definitely gets you to work more quickly and works in a little exercise and fresh air. Option B lets you settle in, stay warm in the winter, finish a chapter of your book or maybe take a brief snooze. Both options are equal in cost, because you have an annual transit pass.
It’s decisions like these that keep my life interesting.
