After driving from north of Carmel to my job downtown for 4 years and paying $$$$ to park, I figured out I could save 40% on transportation by parking in an office park up north for free and catching the bus most of the way. The total commute takes about 15 minutes longer than if I just drive, but it's SO nice to just sit and not navigate traffic the whole way. I catch up on emails on the ride in, and I listen to podcasts or music on the way home. It's like a mobile spa. I love it. There's also a nice sense of community on the bus. People are awesome.
