I am fortunate to live and work downtown… though it is a choice. I choose not to have a car, not to buy “stuff” and I don’t take expensive trips. I am a minimalist, and the reward is not having to sit on the 401 or on the TTC for several hours a day.
Others make different choices, and as I learned in the course of tracking several commuters for Metro Morning, we all have to live with our choices. The question is: is anybody actually happy with the choices laid out in front of them?
And if you can’t get enough: Commuters part 3.
I hope I haven’t offended any “pro commuters” out there who think I SUCK. Then again, if you are pro-commuter, you’d make a great story, so hate away (just be sure to leave your phone number for me.)
