View Full Version : How do you get to school?

11-26-2003, 02:07 PM
Just wondering. Maybe Beyond can help ease the congestion of city streets by promoting a car pooling system.

You could save money on parking too. But for a lot of people, it's not worth the inconvenience of carpooling to save a few cents...

I think Calary has the lowest people/car numbers in the world. Something like 1.1 or 1.2 occupants/vehicle on average. Al Duerr should have got off his duff and done something while Calgary was growing, but he didn't build any new roads or interchanges.

last year i lived across the street from the university, BUT... i paid $4 a day to park at school. Now before you go makin fun of me, you come down and live in lethbridge with the wind, it take 6 min just to cross the damn street on a windy day.:nut:

I like the UofL cause its free parking for motorcycles, and the meters are realitivly cheap to park at. Only problem is getting one of the 2 hour ones

I drive everyday to school, parking is free but I live out of town and gas is about $4-5 a day, and there is no way I am taking the bus, I have to get up like 45 minutes earlier and I am very lazy.

11-26-2003, 11:13 PM
I drive 15 minutes to my buddy's house and then from there I either:
A) Walk 13 blocks to school.
B) Ride bike to school.
C) Jump on the bus.
Its free parking, and the way I see it paying $4 /day is kind of a waste and eventually adds up.

I used to drive the first four years of school but decided to save money this year and take transit. I don't have a parking pass so I pay $4-5/day and it costs me $10 in gas/day (my car is a gas guzzler :rolleyes: ). Now that I take transit I save $300-400 on commuting per month. :thumbsup:

Taking transit is awesome though...a lot of weird people but you get to study on the train and no stress from driving.

funny... i rarely get to study on the train with that much noise :banghead: :banghead:

I think it refers to the smaller school buses that were used by the access kids.

If I jog, it takes all of... 30 seconds to get to all my classes. One of the nicer things about having your house only being half a block from your classes ;)

Living in Mckenzie, taking the transit just isnt worth it. The U of C is too far to screw around with our gay transist system. So thats why I drive. :thumbsup:

01-07-2004, 01:47 PM
I drive, the cost of parking doesn't outwiegh the cost of the train by enough to have to take it.

01-07-2004, 02:01 PM
Driiiiiiiive. I'd never take the train when it's this cold, and when it gets warm it will be too nice to not drive to school. Should be crazy, because I have classes at MRC and UofC on the same days now so I'll be doing lots of running around :burnout:

i drive or get a ride or even better... i remember studying till i passed out in the library at school when i woke up it was time for class, had a lot of gum that day...happened a couple of times not the best sleep but at least i didnt have to pay for parking or gas!
