My husband is much more enthusiastic about taking public transporatation than I am but that's because at heart he is a Chicagoan. I prefer to think of public transportation as hiring a limo, not taking the bus or Light Rail. Because my days of standing on bus corners are over. They were over when I turned 19 and I never looked back. Of course, when I was 19, I was living in Minneapolis and freezing my tush off in the winter. That was an excellent reason to buy a car.
Although, every so often I will take the Capitol Corridor train on Amtrak to the B.A.R.T. into the City, but I look at that experience as being on vacation. When you're on vacation, you can ride a train car filled with chickens and goats and no air conditioning and be happy. Although the Amtrak is actually a far cry from that sort of experience and is really a very comfortable way to travel to San Francisco.
Which takes me to the Light Rail in Sacramento. We had an urge on Sunday to visit the Historic District in Folsom; my husband did not feel like driving. He also gets horribly car sick when I drive, which is no reflection on how I handle curves in the road. You can read more in my personal blog today about how to Hop the Light Rail to Folsom Historic District from Midtown Sacramento.
