In today's economy of rising oil prices, (the per barrel price hit $109 yesterday), people are looking for ways to save money at the gas pump.
Some folks are ecologically minded and have purchased hybrid cars. Not only are they saving in gas purchases, they are not harming the enviroment through use of the electric engines.
Some people have dusted off their trusty old bicycles and ride them to and from work. There is one man I know in Sequim who still rides his 1965 Schwinn around town.
Before you ask, "But Kathy, how do you show properties to your clients???" I'm not an actively licensed agent. I get paid weekly by my boss, the broker, to keep the office open and available to anyone who might need us. Active Rain is my attempt at bringing clients in the door via the internet or AR referrals.
Clallam Transit is the company that gets me to and from work. They have 12 Routes that span the whole county. Most routes focus on Port Angeles and shuttles people to Peninsula College, the Lower Elwah Reservation and other areas in town. The busses connect Diamond Point to Sequim on the east side and on the west, Forks and Clallam Bay to Port Angeles. I travel on Route 30, the Port Angeles/Sequim Commuter.
Clallam Transit is also partnered with other bus companies on the Olympic Peninsula. If you wanted to go shopping in Port Townsend, you can pick up a connecting Jefferson Transit bus in Sequim. You could even travel around the whole of the Olympic Peninsula on a day pass through the partnership of the Jefferson, Clallam, and Grays Harbor Transit companies.
Clallam Transit is a great way to get around the county for all reasons.
