So here we go…
I started this blog with the intentions of recording an experiment about getting around in Little Rock without driving myself for a whole month. I have always enjoyed travelling to other cities where I can utilize the public transit systems and not have to worry about renting a car. However, when my friends from elsewhere come to visit, a car is a must. While Little Rock has a fairly extensive bus system, there are some major shortcomings such as hours of operation, frequency and ease of use. A new trolley system built downtown in recent years has help start the discussion of a better tourist friendly transit method, but it still has a way to come. I plan to document my month of travelling either by foot, bike, bus or rail in and around Little Rock and keep track of miles traveled, and money spent or saved.
The experiment will begin in October, but look for posts in September as I start my preparations and plans.
…meanwhile I will be tinkering around trying to figure out this whole blogging thing.
