The city of Charlotte has a pretty decent system of alternative transportation. I was pleasantly surprised by how simple it was to take the bus from my home in Southeast Charlotte to my place of employment on East Boulevard. Not only was the journey simple, safe and practical it was also affordable.
And did I mention it was user friendly?
If I wanted to attract attention I would probably call this blog Alternative Transportation for Dummies. But one good experience after another with CATS (Charlotte Alternative Transportation System) has me pretty much convinced that the only dummies are the people who haven’t bought into it yet.
Yours truly was such a person. For years I paid lip service to the concept of alternative transportation but never once did I do the unthinkable and ride the bus. I probably never would have had my car not broken down, so I’m thankful that it happened.
I’m thankful that my God is bigger than a busted fuel pump and can get me safely from point A to point B.
