The River Line took 28 minutes, the car took 32 minutes, and the bus took 63. River Line costs were $1.10, the car cost $5.63 (at the IRS allowance of 37.5 cents per mile) and the bus fare was $1.85.Not bad! Train beats car and bus. Seems like a way to guarantee ridership. Maybe speed does count.

I am afraid I won't be able to for a while, so I need to be filled in on what the ride is like.I plan to, probably this Friday if it dosen't rain or snow or whatever the heck it's gonna do too bad. I need to scout that entire line out for photo locations...that's a good way to do it.
