    Don't complain. I spend an easy two hours on the bus every day (I get a ride to school, but not back).

    At least you suburban people get nice buses. I ride the CTA.

    Actually, our buses sucked. The didn't have A/C and due to some stupid safety rules you could only open the windows about 5". They had nasty vinyl seats that your ass sticks to in the summer and the seats were so small I had to sit sideways. When it was hot and rainy out you couldn't open the windows or else you got soaked. It was basically like a sauna on those days.

    Winter wasn't much better either. Half the bus drivers were retarded and never turned on the rear heat, only the front heat, and you were lucky if the bus even had heat to begin with. The other half of the drivers just cranked it and you roasted alive sitting there in your winter coat. You would yell at them to turn it down but they would turn it off and then forget to turn it back on. It was enough to drive you crazy.

    I made a promise to myself... I will not... for as long as I live... will use public transport. I dont care if gas is $5 a gal, and parking is $50... I wont do it. Too many scary people. Plus, I have a Cadillac that I love driving! If Im not on vacation, I will see yall at the Chicago meet... Also planning on doing the Driven' the Dixie run in June. If anyone has ever done it... Its a drive down Dixie highway from Blue Island to Momence. There is a car show at the end, and last year Cadillacs got 2nd and 3rd if I remember correctly. Any make or model can run in it, but to be judged the car has to be 25 yrs or older. I still had a good time last year.

    Out where I'm at I don't have a problem avoiding the Public Transportation....mostly cause the only public transit is the shuttle that takes the retired to the various medical complexes in the area, and of course the bi-monthly run from the Senior Citizen's center to the Casino!

    I live a stones throw away from Blue Island (quite literally), so it wouldn't be out of my way to come.

    Re: Chicago Meet -- August 28-30 -- Official thread -- Public Trans is horrible

    Endless, is there a website for that thing? If I am not visiting my cousins in Kansas City I would be interested. I have been dying to take the Brougham on a trip that is more than the 5 miles to school.

    Re: Chicago Meet -- August 28-30 -- Official thread -- Public Trans is horrible

    Id be interested in coming to the meet, me being the lazy person I am I am not going to try and read this 14 page thread through and through. So, where are we meeting and on what days?

    Id love to go, and actually meet all you smart-ass Cadillac people, if that's alright with you guys...

    Out here in Barrington Illinois there is NO public transportation, just a bunch of jerks with lambos, ferraris, and other exotic cars.

    Oh and Gurl I'm thinking of going to De Paul, I might see you there!

    The only school in Illinois that can handle me would be SIU Carbondale

    But, parents permitting, I might end up at UCLA
