Hop On the Bus, Gus
The bus system in Troyes is a site to behold. Efficient, clean, easy. There's a stop right outside our apartment that in one direction can take me to the shopping district (think really big outlet center bwahahahahha) and to the other side of town in the other direction, not to mention all stops in between. I can get to Corinne's house, the train station, and in like yesterday's case when I felt like death warmed over, a ride home from babysitting. It's 1.10 euros one way, 2.90 euros for a three time pass, and after we finally get over to the unemployment office, 15 euros for unlimited rides for a whole month.
I rode the bus for the first time with Corinne last week, and of course on my own last night. The lines are pretty straightforward, with one coming about every 10 minutes during the week. Only a minor issue when I couldnt get the door open at the end of my journey (some nice guy saw me jamming the button to open the door and yelled at the driver to hold up, which was super nice) but other than that was easy as pie.
You know what this means? I'm freeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!
