Thank you Des Moines MTA!
I rode the van pool today for the first time. It's a pretty quiet group so I can semi-snooze my way into work. Not very good for arriving smart and ready to tackle my day... but sooo much better than driving myself. I am counting the money I'm starting to save as we speak!
The way I figure, it's saving me a minimum of $300 a month to ride the van pool. Even if I only do it throught the spring, that's still a couple of thousand dollars saved. wahoo!
