For those of us who frequent mass transit through TriMet, this is a well-known situation. You go to the bus stop and you wait. I've been doing it since July, 2006, happily and thankfully. I got the perk that I wanted when I got my job, a handed-to-me-yearly-mass-transit pass. When I need a car, I reserve a Zipcar, by the hour, without having to have my own driver's insurance, without having to pay for any gasoline. I'm spoiled by TriMet and Zipcar.
