I recently got a bus pass for going to my work placement in Leith. When I was just at uni I hardly ever got the bus and I stayed The bus stops right outside my house and goes direct to work so its really convenient and so cheap. There’s so many different buses I can get to work as well so I’m never waiting long. I really like the bus, its rare there’s a bad journey. I really like people watching!
I’ve got this new sense of freedom now. Before, even though it is only £1.50, you’d think ‘Do I really need to go there? Do I really need to spend that when I could just walk?’ whereas now I’ve got it I use it all the time. The city seems so much bigger now, its definitely had genuine benefits that I never thought it would. I’ll be going and seeing more places in Edinburgh like the beach and stuff, just because I can. I’ve not the excuse not to, I got the bus pass, I’ve got the time, have bus pass, will travel!
