I take the train to work every day.
I live outside the city and if I wanted to drive it would take double the time and cost triple the amount in gas.
The traffic getting into the city is out of control and I just don’t want to deal with it. I don’t mind taking the train either because I can read or listen to a podcast while I am riding. Some people complain about the train, but I don’t think it’s that bad. The one thing that does bother me about the train is the fact that the HVAC system doesn’t always work very well. In the summer, sometimes they have the heat blasting and in the winter it feels like the air conditioner is running. I have called down to the transportation company that controls the train to see if there is anything they can do to fix the HVAC system in the train. They said it wasn’t possible to fix all the HVAC systems in the trains because they didn’t have the money from the city. I can only imagine how much it would cost to have the HVAC systems in every single train. I wish that they would get the HVAC systems figured out, but I understand that the cost is very high to do so. Hopefully, one day the city will give them the money to fix the HVAC systems or I know that I won’t be the only calling and complaining about the temperatures.
