Gardening and Free Travel

January 8th, 2013 at 05:54 pm

We have been getting a lot of tomatoes, cucumbers and zucchinis from the garden this summer. There has also some strawberries and a handful of blueberries. We have been having salads everyday.

All this week DH has to catch the bus part way to work instead of the train all the way because they are doing some work on the train tracks. Not all buses has the ticketing facilities, I think most of them are school buses they have no need for it (it is our school holiday that's why they are using them). So DH hasn't been paying for some of his trip. I think it will be at least $20 savings for the week. And because of the inconvenience they have been providing breakfast, DH got free banana yesterday. They've also been giving away bbq breakfast sausages, he has opted not to have any of those.

    Interesting! I'm pretty sure that in Chicago, if they had to bus us part way, we would still pay full price!

    Our public transport ticketing system is now fully electronic and the school buses don't have them, too expensive to put them in. We have 2 different zones and different prices for each zones. With this new ticketing system we have to both swipe on and swipe off and it determines how much your travel cost. If you don't swipe off it will charge maximum amount. For DH because he can't swipe off (on the way home, vice versa in the morning)it would cost him a lot more because he doesn't need to go to Zone 2 area, so they just let people through. Considering it is taking him an extra 15 minutes each way they can't really argue too much. Plus they just increase the prices by about 6% at the start of the year so they are really not losing that much.
