Transit Service comes to Manhattan, KS

Oh, a 3rd problem...is bus passes. They said you can get them at Dillons. I tried to get one for May, and they said that they were calling Dillons that day and they would be selling them later that evening. (April 30th)....but I opted to just keep scrounging $1 bills and other coins to pay for my rides in May.

I then tried to buy a June pass. Dillons informed me that they have never sold any passes yet, but someday they might start selling them. I ended up spending $2 for a bus trip to buy a June pass from the ATA offices. Including getting grief for not knowing where they had hidden the bus stop at Ray's...and the driver not wanting to stop longer than to quickly open and close the doors. Wonder if the office is tracking door openings or something....

And, then because of problems 1 & 2...I didn't ride enough in the month of June to break even. Though I considered getting a July pass anyways...I didn't find out that I would need to make a trip to the ATA office if I wanted to get one, until July 1st.

My Saturday grocery run is becoming a Sunday event, because the bus service means I can go to Target, Wal-Mart, the Mall, etc. easier.

And, its not just because weather is less of a factor now....even if I get off to a late start....not have to walk an hour plus to the mall, and the hour and a half to walk back from Wal-Mart...means I can get things done and get home for other things. Though the way the bus runs and the transfer involved....it makes me favor Target over Wal-Mart.

In fact, before the ATA Bus, I had never set foot in the Target in Manhattan, KS ever in my life. I had shopped there before, but only the Target at the Yorktown Center in Lombard, IL during Thanksgiving/Chicago TARDIS. Now, I've been there 3 times. Wonder if I should get a REDcard?

Maybe after the trip for Cablecards.....

Now instead of subjecting some poor random forum to a long rambling thought, I will try to consolidate those things into this blog where they can be more easily ignored profess to be collected thoughts from my mind.
