Green Travels

Today's tip is short and sweet. Oahu has a great transit system via The Bus. If you come on a budget and don't have a rental car, don't be afraid to hop on.

I sold my car when we moved to town and have been riding the bus. I have a lot of scribbles in a notebook that have as yet to be written into posts.


Got a travel post? A tip of where to go near your home or state? A photo post? You can link on up, and the post does not have to be written today....

I'll remember this tip for my future travel experiences. Greetings from Southern Oregon.

I spent many years utilizing public transportation - Oldest Son, who practically lives in downtown Dallas, still does. You're right; it's so much cheaper than maintaining a vehicle.

I hope that the warm weather is upon us that I'll be able to participate in Travel Tip Thursday more often. In fact, I look forward to it.

After another unexpected hundreds spent on my car this year, I considered selling mine too. *grumble grumble*

Anyway, I LOVE cities with good public transit (think: Europe!) and I hope someday I can live in one.

If I lived in a city, no way I'd own a car.

I love taking the train into the city (like once a year)... the people watching is fantastic.

Living where I do, the bus just isn't an option for getting around. Everything is too far from each other. However, when I was in Chicago, whenever we wanted to go anywhere, we either walked or hopped in the L. Everything was close!

No bus here, but I love riding buses in cities (and trains between cities). Where is the TTT link?

My favorite part of living in England was the train/bus system. They have incredible public transit. Oh, and I did "travel". He, he, he.

Jude's favorite thing when we visit NYC is the public transit - the bus, subway, taxis - the kid loves them all! I need to get an LA Travel Tip Thursday up soon. Maybe I'll tell about our little known, but very cool, subway system.

Unfortunately, I live in an area where public transportation is just not avaialable.
