Here’s one for my Boston friends– and D.C. if there are any of you here too!
In case you’ve been living under a rock, or don’t follow me on Twitter, I am not a fan of Boston’s public transit system. And that’s the understatement of the year.
I’m sure all of you Beantowners can sympathize and agree with me when it comes to some rough commutes on the MBTA. So in the worst of it this past winter, I was SO excited to find Bridj.

The best way I can describe this new transportation system is Uber-meets-coach-bus. Every weekday at heavy-traffic commuting times, Bridj runs multiple buses along popular commuting routes, like Brighton to Financial District, Coolidge Corner to Seaport, Allston to Copley Square, and so on. You book your spot on the bus, whichever time is most convenient to you, and I guarantee you end up at your destination in at LEAST a third of the time it would take you via the T.
The mister now takes Bridj every day– so much easier than the Green Line to Red Line to Silver Line mess he was putting up with for the last couple years. Since my route isn’t quite perfected yet (it still requires me to walk a bit since the South End isn’t exactly the most popular office location!), I reserve my trips for mornings when I’m extra tired,
hungover, bad weather, or just cannotdeal with the T. BUT Bridj has been adding new pick-up and drop-off locations like crazy lately, so I’m hopeful
