Bus Chick, Transit Authority (Seattle)

Carla Saulter is one of a growing number of Seattleites who have chosen to live without a car. Because Seattle still does not have in-city rapid transit, she takes the bus everywhere — really, everywhere — she goes. (On any given Saturday night, you can find her running for the number 27 in heels and a backless dress.)

Though she has certainly experienced inconveniences, her decision to give up driving has profoundly and positively changed her life. Some of these positive changes include: enforced exercise, time to read, reduced expenses, and contact with her community on a level that would never have been possible in the isolated bubble of a single-occupancy vehicle.

If you ride a bus, you can chat up girls this cute.

I swear.

It's called civilization!
