commutergirl's mom was in town, because, Baby!
Because her ride was me, I recommended that she take public transportation as often as possible, and she quickly learned the ins and outs of the system, even planning her own bus/TRAX outings on more than one occasion.
As part of her travels to visit other relatives, she even planned a trip on FrontRunner. All was well until we realized that her plans behooved her to travel on Sunday.
FrontRunner doesn't run on Sunday. Poop.
The next hour was spent researching other options. The Salt Lake Shuttle would have cost over four times as much as FrontRunner. A rental car was more expensive still, but that was the option we went with because it was more convenient. But we were all sad she didn't get to take FrontRunner.
Based on this experience, I will hear no more talk of how expensive FrontRunner is. It's more than I'd like to pay, too, but there are far more expensive options to get around.
Also, FrontRunner should run on Sundays. Just saying.
