Did you know there are more reasons to take the bus besides that warm feeling you get by considering yourself more environmentally-conscious than the next person? You don't have to buy a magazine to see the latest fashion do's and don'ts, or the trends in accessories. You could find your new favorite song by overhearing it blasting out of someone's headphones.

All you need is $2, a cell or iPhone (to check arrival times), and a sense of adventure.I'll present some of the experiences I've had while on a TriMet bus as well as offer tips for making a trip on public transit less mundane.
