School: SOTA (School of the Arts)
Gets around by: Bus
Where do you live and where do you go to school?
I live by the University Place library and I am a junior at Tacoma School of the Arts.
How do you get there?
I take the #2 bus to school and back home Monday-Friday.
How does it all add up? How much time and money do you save?
It saves my parents a trip downtown to drop me off while I get an ORCA card through my school so essentially my commute is free. I also save time getting home from school, and I can also work on my homework.
What’s in it for you?
Every morning and afternoon I’m able to get a little more exercise in my day by having to walk to the bus stops.
Do you have any tips for people who may be trying these modes for the first time?
Bus stop times aren’t always accurate due to hold-ups and traffic or the bus might be ahead of schedule, so always make sure to be at the bus stop at least 5 minutes early.
