I live very close to my current work place in the city. During the cold weather I take mass transportation. It takes me 20 minutes by bus and train, and costs me $76 for a monthly unlimited Metocard. When the weather is nice, I usually walk to work. It takes me 20 minutes to reach work by foot, and costs me nothing. During the summer, I buy Pay-Per-Ride metrocards since I don’t use the metrocard everyday. But more importantly, walking is a healthy exercise. Sometimes waiting for the bus can get frustrating. Walking lightens your mood and relieves stress.
Of course, I know not everyone walks to work. Tell us about your commute. How much do you spend for your commute? And how long is it? Do you think it’s worth the time and money?
