When I was in high school from 1999-2003, every day I took Metro-North and the Bee-Line bus to get home. Some other days I used to go all the way into Fordham and take the Bx34 bus home. I lived upstate for awhile after, and I used to have to travel all the way from Bronxville to the Dover Plains each day, so I had a pretty nice ride each day.

When I was going to college, the M-N miles I was traveling were substituted for the Subway into Manhattan. I'm always trying several different routes to get around. Normally, I'd take the D from 205th to 59th, but on a few rare occasions the D wouldn't run to 205th, so I'd have to take the 4 to 161st and transfer to the D, or I could take the 1/9. I could also get to GCT and take M-N home, or walk crosstown and take an express bus or catch the 4. But when I get a chance, I'll take a ride, either Metro-North or on the Subway.
I'd like to take a small trip on Amtrak one day, I've never ridden either.

Well...

Post by R44 5212 A Train »

I've been on the subway systems in NYC, Philly, Washington, and Chicago...as well as the Path train.

I've been on the WDW Monorail, and the Seattle Monorail.

I've been on NJT and Metro-North commuter trains.

I've been on the HBLR.

I've also been on subways and trains in Isreal.

My next transit goal is Muni/Bart in SF...it's really cool from what I hear, plus I have relatives there who are really cool!
