Hear, hear, kitty! Although I wish could take transit without leaving the house before 6 a.m.

I wish I could take transit, period.

There's no PACE bus along Golf? That's...wow, that's just stupid of them.

Unlike in the rest of the world, where bus routes are circular or back-and-forth, buses around here only go one way and then disappear off the edge of the world. The morning bus goes only east (I go west). The afternoon bus goes only west (I go east). I could take the train, but the nearest station is as far south of me as work is west of me.

So... no transit, period.

Yeah.

And I so wanted to take the bus, so I could read and stuff.

Six AM? How far out from the city are you that it takes so long? (Granted, it could have been at least that bad from New Jersey to NYC, but that's because there was a big river in the way.)

It's the spoke-like nature of Chicago's Metra. An hour to get downtown, and another hour to get to the other suburb she works in. Plus walking from the stations.

Oh, right. I keep forgetting not every city's transit system is a crazy-quilt like New York's...

Ah, if I worked in the city it would be a piece of cake. Suburb-to-suburb is another story. Metra (the commuter rail system, separate from CTA) is set up on a spoke system, and work is two spokes away from home. There's talk of creating an outer connecting route, but the target date keeps getting pushed back.

My only transit option (unless I wanted to go in to Union Station and back out again, which would take even longer) involves three buses, the first of which I'd have to catch at 5:55.
