The Bus Is Running Away From Me

I think my bus is running away from me.

Seriously, when I first started taking the bus from my current job, I had a two and half block walk to my stop to go home. Then they split the route in two and it didn’t stop there anymore. I had to walk four and a half blocks to the new stop.

This was annoying, but I dealt with it. The worst part was that the old stop was by a building alcove so I had shelter from the wind, rain, and snow. The new stop was completely exposed. You can imagine, RTD doesn’t really have many shelters. Still, I dealt with it.

Now I’ve heard that my stop is going to be closed due to construction. From May 29 of this year until December 2019. A year and a half. The stop I’m told to use? It’s six and a half blocks from my job. I have a choice of the stop before mine…which is also a six and a half block walk from my work.

The bus is running away from me. Soon my stop coming home will be outside my house and I’ll just have to walk or start driving. I really try to commit to using mass transit, but they like to make it as challenging as possible.
