‘Why I Ride‘ is a series where Metro employees share their transit routines – read more about the concept here.
Name: Doug Goodwin
Position: Web Developer
How often do you take transit?
5.5 days per week.
Gold line, Red line and Rapid 704 (express to the beach).
Are you car-free? If so, why? If not, why not?
Nope. I need my truck to keep my house repaired.
Do you use any other alternative transportation (bicycle, rideshare, etc)?
I love my folding bike.
Do you think being a regular Metro rider is important to your job?
Hmm, important? I think of it more as a great perk.
Why do you love transit?
As Amtrak used to remind us, ‘There’s something about a train…’
Is there anything else you’d like to add (anecdote, advice, etc)?
Give me NextBus if you really want me to give up my car!
