Riding public transportation sucks
There’s nothing more frustrating than trying to get somewhere using a bus or subway, only to find that you’ve been sitting in a tunnel for 30 minutes and still have another 20 minutes until you reach your destination. It’s all too easy to get lost in your phone or get distracted by the people around you—and then suddenly, it’s time to get off!
But there are ways to make riding public transportation less of a pain and more of an enjoyable experience. First of all, try listening to music or podcasts on your way there and/or back. You’ll be surprised at how much time can pass before you realize it!
Second, if you’re new to the area, download the app for your local transit agency and figure out how exactly it works before taking off on your trip. This will help ensure that you don’t end up going in the wrong direction because someone got off at an unexpected stop!
Thirdly… oh wait, this is just one thing: bring snacks with you! Sure, there might be some snacks available on the bus or train itself, but it’s always better to have something already planned out in case hunger strikes unexpectedly (which it always does).
So how do you make it fun?
If you plan for public transportation, it can be really fun
Public transportation is a great way to get around town, but it can be a lot of work if you don’t know what you’re doing.
I’m here to tell you: it doesn’t have to be that hard! If you plan for public transportation, it can be really fun.
First things first: figure out what kind of public transportation works best for your needs—and then research the route. You might want to look into apps like Google Maps or Transit, which will give you step-by-step directions on how to get where you’re going on the bus or train (and when). You’ll also want to make sure that there are enough stops nearby so that it doesn’t take forever to get where you need to go. If your stop isn’t close enough, find another one!
Once you’ve got your route set up and all planned out, make sure that there’s a place for your bike at each stop along the way! Some routes have bike racks available for bikes with locks attached (which is great), but others don’t—so make sure that if your bike isn’t locked up somewhere else in town, it has its own lock so no one can steal it while you’re riding on the bus or train.
Grab some goodies before riding the bus
Hey, you! Yeah, you.
Ever been on the bus and thought to yourself, “Man, this would be a lot more fun if I was high”? Well, guess what! You can be. All it takes is one puff of a THC cartridge before you go out in public, and suddenly the world is your oyster—or at least that seat next to you on the bus.
If you’ve ever wanted to ride the bus while high but didn’t have time to smoke up before getting on board—or if you just don’t like smoking anything—this is what you’ve been waiting for. Puffing on a THC cartridge will give you just enough THC to get in the zone without getting too high to function or communicate with others normally. It’s an easy way to take advantage of cannabis-infused products without having to smoke anything or wait for it to kick in.
If you’re worried about getting caught by police officers when smoking marijuana in public, then puffing on a THC cartridge might be just what the doctor ordered. A lot of law enforcement officers won’t know what they’re seeing when they see people using these kinds of products because they’re so new on the market right now; they’ll probably assume it’s some kind of nicotine vape. Boom! Sweet ride.
Bring entertainment when you’re going to ride the bus
Hey, did you know that you can bring your entertainment with you when you ride the bus?
If you’re like us and have been waiting for the day when you can watch Netflix on the bus, the day has come!
All you need is a pair of headphones and a smart phone, and suddenly your commute becomes much more pleasant. We know what you’re thinking: “But I don’t want to look like an idiot with my phone in front of my face.” Well guess what? You don’t have to!
There are so many ways to enjoy entertainment without looking like a loser. Here are three of our favorite methods:
1) The Boombox Method: For this method, all you need is an external speaker (like this one) and some music or content. Plug in your phone, turn on some tunes or watch something funny on YouTube—and voila! You’ve got yourself a boombox that nobody will judge because they’ll assume it’s just another person listening to their own music/content.
2) The Photoshop Method: This method takes some planning ahead, but if done right it will pay off big-time in the long run. Bring photoshop with you and edit pictures of people on the bus. Super fun!
Make sure to get off the bus at the right stop!
If you’re like us, sometimes you get on the wrong bus. Or maybe you just think you got on the wrong bus, but it turns out that wasn’t true—and now you’re stuck on a bus going to a place where you don’t want to go.
But don’t worry! We’ve got some tips for getting off at the right stop.
First, make sure your phone’s battery is charged. If it runs out of juice mid-commute and you can’t call for help, then… well, we don’t want to think about what could happen. So make sure everything’s in order there first.
Next up: check your route. If there’s no wifi available where you are, try using Google Maps or something similar to find out where exactly your bus is taking you. If it looks like it’s not taking the most direct route to where you want to go (and if your phone is charged), then maybe ask someone if they know how long until the next stop (or how long until they get off).
Finally, if all else fails? Just relax! You’ve got this!
