I Love My St. Louis Commute

I Love My St. Louis Commute

It may not be easy for someone in St. Louis to live car-free, but I’m getting close. If it weren’t for the weekly visit to the grocery store I just might be able to do it. So there’s my commute above. Locations are approximate and I always walk that first ~0.5 miles instead of taking a bus as Google Maps suggests. It’s 20 minutes each way and to be honest my only complaint is that at 9 minutes the train ride is too short to really read much or do anything productive.

Anyone else loving their St. Louis commute?
