Once-in-a-while I take the metro to school. I really am not liking it. It is efficient and was cool at first, but really, it is filled with icky germs, is extremely hot, and quite crowded. I feel like a factory farmed cow when I am on it.
I get on the orange line at Beaubien, transfer to the Green line at Berry-UQUAM and get off at McGill. I do the opposite to get home.
The time tables are super fast during peak hours, and still fairly fast (a train every 6 minutes or so) during off hours.
I have been biking to school in the rain and cold this week. I prefer that to taking the metro. Grandma Hazel's words keep echoing in my head, "Wear a hat! You lose heat through your ears!" So, I follow her advice and wear a headband or hat underneath my helmet. I also have a plethora of mittens and gloves to choose from depending on the weather.
