Bus chicks and nerds
OK, forget the headline. It wasn’t really my idea. It came from this story (from the News-Tribune in Ballard) about living car-free in Seattle. I found the interview with Seattle’s self-named “bike chick” interesting and helpful. Living car free is not easy in Seattle. I did it for years as a young person in Chicago, but then Chicago has a large and integrated transit and train system that makes living car free easier. It’s encouraging to know people can do it here, and they even enjoy it. Perhaps some of the car-free residents of Broadview and Bitterlake can share their stories here. When Aurora service is upgraded to “Rapid Bus” more people may choose this lifestyle.
