Weekly Photo Challenge: Morning

commuter bus

Commuter steps into early morning bus.

This image of early morning bus commuters is my entry for this week’s challenge.  It also appears in an earlier post.

I got up before dawn on a cold February morning to stake out this shot.  I was interested in the experiences of people who take the bus to work in our suburban town.  Public transportation is often lauded as the antidote to traffic congestion, although it may not be the most efficient.

For example, Keisha rides the bus because her car broke down.  In order to get to work on time, she catches the same 6:53 AM bus as the commuters pictured here.  If Keisha could drive to her job, she’d be there in 20 minutes. Taking the bus adds over 40 minutes to the trip and requires that she walk nearly two miles to and from the bus stops, on roads with no pedestrian walkways. What a way to start your day!

  1. Once I had the same story. I was working on the plant which is situated in the suburbs of the city and to get there you need to change at least 2 buses or walk for approximately 1 hour, or take 1 bus than walk 30 mins, and of course wake up earlier. I was suffering during the winter time to do those routs, while our car was repairing.
