As you have probably seen, the results for March’s poll are in…and they are clearly skewed towards one end of the spectrum. Of the 125 total votes 64% of the respondents said that they only ride Metro a few times a month or never at all.

Due to what I thought was the readership of this site, I found this somewhat surprising, but then after further thought not so much. For full disclosure I must say that I selected the ‘couple times a week’ option. Once I move though that response will most certainly change to a daily ridership as I plan to get rid of my car entirely.

So what’s your story…do you ride often or not so much. And in either case, what’s the rationale? Is it an inconvenience, not your style, or do you really love and/or hate riding the bus? Do tell.
