Streetfilms: Seattle’s Bus Chick on the Rewards of the Riding Life

Carla Saulter pens a very eclectic blog called Bus Chick, Transit Authority, which you can find on the Seattle Post Intelligencer’s web site.

Carla, who lives car-free with her husband and young daughter, is all about riding transit and inspiring
others to do the same. The bus has indeed figured prominently in her life: she
met her husband on the bus; riding has provided her with a creative
outlet for stories and interesting anecdotes; and she named her first
child for the most renowned bus rider in history.

I was bowled over when I heard that Carla actually went by bus to
give birth at the hospital (not to mention to come home
afterward). I knew then and there that I needed to profile her. I just wish I lived closer to the
Bus Chick family so I could ride the bus with them more
often.
