October 10 Day 946: Let’s Get On the Bus

Another post-covid first—the first Pierce Transit bus ride since March 2020.

With three adults at home and only two cars, sometimes public transportation is required. My son dropped me off at work early this morning and I made my way home on the bus.

Suffice it to say that alternate routes due to construction made navigating previously familiar bus routes an adventure. Google maps is pretty amazing but not foolproof and there was a moment of foolishness.

The 13 hasn’t taken Dock Street since the start of 2022. Too bad that I walked over the Bridge of Glass to get to catch the 13 on Dock Street. Apparently it barreled down Pacific Ave instead. That would have been so much easier.

Instead I headed back up the hill to Zone F of Commerce and 10th where I caught a 16. It meant getting home nearly an hour later but at least I met my step goal. I will know better next time.
