On the Street

When was the last time you rode the bus?

MARY BRYAN

Twenty years ago. I don't live in an area that's serviced by the public bus.

Would you ride the bus more often if it did service your area?

Yeah, definitely.


HANNAH ROLLI

Maybe three years ago. When I went out to eat at EWU, I would ride the bus.

Why don't you ride the bus anymore?

I have a car and I live like 2 miles away from anywhere I need to go.


JIM BARTHELMESS

About five years ago.

And why haven't you taken the bus since then?

Because I live in Kendall Yards and I walk everywhere.


STEPHANIE FLEISHER

Never. I mean, in Seattle I did.

So why not in Spokane?

I use my own car for transportation because it's easier.

Is there anything that would increase the likelihood of you taking the bus?

No. I like to just come and go as I please.


KATHRYNE STAUDINGER

The public bus? That would be never.

Why not?

I have my car here, and I rode a public bus for a lot of my time in South America and I don't want to do that again. But I do have a bus pass actually, so that's something I should do sometime.
