If you’ve never known the delight of taking public transportation to get where you need to go, prepare yourself – you’re in for a ride you won’t soon forget! With the exception of a handful of cities in our lovely country, most public transportation systems involve huddling into a cramped, odory bus or subway train, and trying to endure the stench and sweat as you wait patiently to arrive at your stop, and if you’re not one for closed spaces, there’s the taxi – as long as you’re willing to spare more money per fare than it would cost you in gas per week! It’s really crazy to me that people will spend so much money on a pricey cab fare, however a few rides on a odory bus will convince you that the cost is well worth it. For me, I’ve only known one public transformation authority that provided a comfortable, safe experience. That was blissful, as I lived about more than four miles outside of the neighborhood and could walk to work – from the train station, that is. The train from our small village to the big city was clean, never crowded and had excellent A/C! The heating in the Winter time time was also excellent. I found out as I rode the trains that each rail car had a miniature air cleaner running, which improved the indoor air quality of each rail car dramatically. Those air cleaners helped to not only contain the odors of less hygienic riders, but also kept any unwanted cigarette smoke out of the car, too. I’ve rode in private cars with excellent heating and cooling however nothing compared to the comfort, convenience and cost effectiveness of that public train.
