I only uber if its worth the trip. I always took the bus to work. If I'm with friends I'm usually in a nice car. I like public transportation because it gives me time to think and plan things out instead of just sleeping. It's a better way to waste time. I say waste time because It usually takes thirty minutes to an hour to reach your destination. When I drove I spent a lot on gas and now I don't spend nearly as much on transportation. In some counties, buses connect to different cities. I find this convenient when you don't know your way around since all of the destinations are at the Terminal. Growing up in The Triangle If I ever got bored I would take a one way trip to the terminal and choose my next destination.
