Commute to work via The Rapid
Commute from Clyde Park & 54th St. Meijer to Burton & East Beltline.
I took the 7:11 AM bus from the Meijer at Clyde Park and 54th St. It was a very quiet trip down Clyde park with it being a summer holiday week. Bus driver was friendly and we talked a little about whether he knew my cousin who drives for the Rapid.
I got off at Burton to transfer to the Burton Cross-town bus. It was a 10 minute wait and the weather was nice.
The Burton Cross-town was also very quiet. At each stop, the bus driver rotated through a series of rhyming farewells to the people gettng off. Mine was "As you leave, hope you have a nice weekend indeed!"
Two others that I remember him saying to others were: "As the day goes, hope yours has a positive flow!" and "As you go upon your way, hope you have a wonderful day!". ...or something like that. Nice touch and an easy commute.
