10 Useful Activities You Can do While on the Bus

Dec 21, 2010 by Lisa Newton

More often than not, using the Metro will usually take longer than traveling by car, especially if you live on the Westside.

Therefore, successful time management is almost always one of the more important issues when taking the Metro or other public transportation.

As the old saying goes, time is money.

So, what can you do with the extra time when traveling by bus?

With the rise of smartphones, time management is now much easier.

Here’s ten useful and productive ideas:

1. Read a book for pleasure or school

2. Twitter

3. Knit/Crochet

4. Answer email

5. Read a blog or the news

6. Draw or write out your future plans as a way to turn your dreams into reality

7. Play a game or listen to some of your favorite tunes

8. Talk/text on your phone

9. Update your Facebook status

10. Write a to-do list

And there you have it. If indeed, time is money, drivers, who are stuck in traffic, for the most part, aren’t using their time wisely, but traveling by bus or subway, you can do much more useful and productive activities while traveling.

It makes perfect sense and is definitely food for thought………………….

    Great article.
    I couldn’t agree more!!
    May I also add one thing:
    “Catch-up on your sleep!”
    Yup, that’s right. Many times, especially after work, I’ve dozed-off in a bus (or train), so when getting off at my final stop, I feel revived and refreshed, ready for that final (and healthy!) walk, from the bus stop to my home.
    That’s one of the benefits of public transportation. You get to do MUCH more useful things with your time in traffic, instead of being stressed behind the wheel and listening to the retarded “music” jamming from your blown-out car speakers.

    @Alek F, Thanks, Alek. I’m always afraid to fall asleep on the bus for fear I’ll miss my stop. :)
