Public transportation

[ #25093 ]

Sometimes, it works :-)

I can catch the Carris 22 out from my apartment and leave it only in the end of the route. That takes about 40 minutes, but I had to do it anyway to get to work.

From there, I get the Vimeca 13, and twenty minutes later I'm on the second floor of the client's building, ready to work :-)

Whoo-hooo! :-D

And it's confortable, and it's not crowded.

    • No, no, no.

      I guess I didn't explain myself right :-)

      First I get from home to the company I'm working at.

      That usually takes half an hour.

      At the previous client I was working at, I had to undertake an extra taxi ride from there, which took 30-60 minutes, depending on traffic.

      With this new client, I extend the first 30 minutes by bus to 40 minutes (I get off at the end of the line).

      From there, I catch another bus, which is a great bus, because I have so much space and it doesn't stop too many times. I ca
