Here and Away

Posted by mike_cramton Aug 29, 2007

The Consumer Media team in San Diego is in a contest to one-up each other with interesting ways to get to and from the office. Luke prefers to lane-share on his Honda VTX 1300 motorcycle, braving the road rage that is rampant on the SoCal freeways. Michelle, Jesse, Airey and Toby like to cycle to the office, at one point in the trek actually merging with the I-5 (the eight-lane, mega-freeway that eats SUVs for breakfast). It seems risking your life is a growing trend in our morning commutes.

 

I, on the other hand, share a safe, peaceful commute with my wife (who works across Lusk), occasionally taking public transportation home. The getting home part is always a bit difficult. I'm still trying to find the best alternative to a car. The other day I took the free shuttle to the Coaster, paid $5, rode the train to the Old Town station, transferred for free to the Green Line trolley to SDSU transit center, paid another $2 and caught the #15 bus to Adams and Kensington. Total trip time: 2 hours 40 minutes. Total cost: $7. Not sitting in 805 traffic: priceless. I think I'll research that bike option....
