Adventures in Public Transport

Thought of my friend Alina when I saw this sign on my way to catch the bus to the conference this morning. Last month at the International Communication Association, she not only took public transportation to just about every major tourist attraction in the city, she did it with her 6-year old daughter!

So, when I had a mini anxiety twitch this morning -- some bus signs looked like this, others were unmarked with route number, and on the train last night there’d been signs and flyers about MetroLink’s proposed restoration of service to certain areas -- I remembered Alina and how she was the pubtranspo master in Chicago, and told myself, if she could figure out that system on the spot, I could find my way to St. Louis University.
