Liveblogging from the #18 Elm Hill Pike Bus

So I’ve been trying to ride the bus to work once a week. It’s actually two buses to anywhere in Nashville unless you live or work downtown. (Which I don’t.)

My normal commute is less than 10 miles and generally takes about fifteen minutes. Even though I drive an eight year old SUV, at $5.00 per day, the MTA bus isn’t any cheaper and takes three times as long.

But I think it’s an important gesture to make, and my employees think it is hilarious to see one of the owners of the company walking a few blocks to stand at the bus stop on the corner. I’m hoping I can change a few attitudes.

Or maybe I’m just peculiar.

But I figure it should provide some good blog fodder.

    Oink, oink.

    Not everybody on the bus is a saint. Just this morning, some old coot leaned across the aisle to a shy Muslim woman with her head covered and asked loudly and slowly, “Do…You…Speak…English?”

    She nodded her head yes.

    He said, “Good!”

    Hmmm, I’ll go with “just peculiar.”

    Brave effort, tho. I applaud you putting your convictions into action.

    Ummm, are you still on the bus or waiting downtown to transfer? Because we could pick you up and take you to work. Is the MTA anything like Greyhound?
