The Coast - - VISUAL ARTS - —Don’t want to own a car

I have a job in­ter­view on Fri­day. If I owned a car, I would be able to get there in nine min­utes, be­cause it’s only five and a half kilo­me­tres away. If I walked, it’d take an hour and one minute. If—or when—I have to rely on Hal­i­fax Tran­sit, I’m look­ing at 35 to 52 min­utes of tran­sit time. The LEAST amount of walk­ing I could do would be for 17 to 20 min­utes, and I’d have to take two dif­fer­ent buses. In­stead, I’ll likely opt for a 20-minute bike ride. Shame on you, tran­sit!
