How often do you take transit?

5.5 days per week.

What lines/routes?

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!
