I’m on a mission to ride every bus in Berkeley.


The simple answer is that I just want to know where they all go. Of course, there’s a lot more behind it. I’m still unpacking what all that is.

But why blog about it?

Again, the simple answer is that I love writing and photographing and documenting, and it’s so easy to put up a blog as an easy way to record my experience. And, of course, I’d love to share my experience with other people. And! if other people get inspired to ride the bus, even better!

When did you start?

Um, as of May 23rd, 2017, I haven’t started yet. I’m still in “Beta Testing” mode. My kids are good about encouraging me to “satisfice” and just get going already. I’m trying to find a balance and start the blog and not sit around, but still give myself time to figure things out. So, I’m taking inspiration from the tech companies to the south and letting myself have an extended beta testing mode.

How is it going to work?

Yeah, still a lot of details to figure out. See my first post for more on what those details are.

Who am I?

Another good question. For now, I’m a parks and trails designer (landscape architect), mother, wife, daughter, sister, Berkeleyan, Berkeley Transportation Commissioner, knitter, hiker, biker, bus rider, pedestrian, artist, and more.

Anything else?

Thanks for asking! Of course there is. Off the top of my head everyone should know:
