Multimodal Commute

Today I did the bike to train thing.  11km to the Sandy Springs MARTA station and then riding to the Civic Center station and then biking the one block to work.  1 hour and fifteen minutes from home to my desk although I was delayed waiting for a bathroom stall to change in.  

At one point on the train ride my car had three bikes in it, not bad.

Update: The combination bus/bike trip home took 52 minutes.  Not bad.

Not bad at all.

There's a couple of guys in my neighborhood that do the opposite. They ride the train up to Sandy Springs from the Arts Center station.

Today on my ride in I met another professor at Georgia Tech. We've lived down the street from each other for more than 20 years, both ride bikes to work and have just today met each other. I guess sometimes it's a big world instead of a small world.

It occurred to me, you could probably take advantage of Midtown's Commuter Rewards. Check it out.

Nice. I use a folding bike for my multi-mode commute. Makes taking my bike on and off the train a lot easier. I can also throw it in a car trunk if need be
