Every day I get in the queue…

… to get on the bus that takes me to U…CR.

It looks like my schedule this quarter will allow for me to take public transportation to and from school.  That means I can avoid purchasing a parking permit.  While it is nice to be making a step towards `going green’, my motivations for taking this step are admittedly more financial than environmental.  As a student at UCR, I can ride on the RTA busses free, so I can save a bit more than 2% of my net income by not buying a parking permit (almost 3%, counting the little bit of gas I save).

It may not be much, but with the uncertainty of what happens after the end of this quarter, I’m happy to be able to cut corners financially, especially since it does not stress my schedule.  I might even be able to take advantage of routes other than the home ⇒ school ⇒ home circuit at some point.  _
