Of course at any job or even when in school, meetings with your peers and staff are something that you just have to get use to. Being on time is vital and sometimes even contributing to the conversation is as well. In a few of the meetings that I have been a part of, the issues of public transportation keep arising. I’m not sure if young adults just don’t know how to configure the transpo system or if it’s really that damn unorganized, but something has got to give. I think it makes total sense to make use of the available transpo options that we have (train, bus, uber, cab, etc) but if one cannot even figure out how to use any of them, then it’s not being the best at what it’s suppose to do. I think it’s becoming extremely important for staff members, who haven’t taken a bus or train ride before (or have not taken one in quite sometime) that work with people who use the system to actually try it for themselves. It just makes more sense to me to be able to explain and direct someone on how to do something if I’ve already done it… you know, speak from relevant experience. It’s way more encouraging. The bus is hella confusing– standing at specific stops, knowing the routes, jumping on and off different buses at different stops or at the station, inserting exact bus fare, using the bus transfers, etc… it goes on and on.
Sure there’s different apps and resources online (even at the bus terminals) to help you figure things out, but there’s nothing like someone you know and trust, walking you through things.
If you have some questions, reach out to a friend… you can even ask me right here on this forum. Check out for travel options, tips and guides to public transportation. The help is out there, but do not be afraid to ask someone a question, there’s no such thing as a dumb question.
