Welcome to the Blogroll: Booking it Bus Style

7_2_09_booking.jpg

All too often, transit blogs tend to focus on the negative of riding the bus or taking the train.  Experienced riders come off as jaded and veteran activists are just ornery because of the splitting headache earned from years of banging your head into the concrete divider known as the Metro Board of Directors.  I admit to being as guilty of this trap as anyone.  But if you're looking to read something completely different than the griping and moaning, try reading Booking It Bus Style.

Booking It Bus Style isn't a policy blog.  You won't see Rosemary complaining about the Mayor; and complaints about other riders are infrequent compared to more easy-to-read posts about life on the bus and what book is taking up her commute.  You see, Rosemary went from veteran driver, to car-free as quick as one can take keys off a key chain and has devoted her commute to reading and busing.  As a former NYC rail commuter who has abandoned transit for his bike, I had actually forgotten the simple joy of sitting down for a good read after a long day at work.

So if you're looking for some light reading about the joys one discovers when riding the bus when the policy blogs are wearing you down, click on over to Booking it Bus Style and see what new adventure, or new book, Rosemary wants to tell us about.
