October Golden Transfer

Golden Transfer

October’s Golden Transfer goes to the Tuckers–Sterling (aka “Daddy Tucker”), Danuelle (aka “Mommy Tucker”), Little Sterling, Shaun, and Steven–an Eastside family who put down the keys to their SUV and got on the bus this month.

It started with Daddy Tucker, who took an evening class in Seattle and chose a comfortable ride on a Sound Transit commuter bus over the bumper-to-bumper insanity on 520. Bus Nerd and I (both separately and together) ran into Daddy Tucker on the 545 on his way to class.

And then, at the Douglass-Truth extravaganza on the 14th, we ran into the entire Tucker family. They came all the way from Kirkland for the occasion, and–this time, at the insistence of Mommy Tucker, who had some Metro free-ride passes–made the trip without a car. Mommy Tucker felt it was high time for the boys Tucker to take their first bus ride (255+48, for those who care to know), and this bus chick agrees. Here’s hoping it won’t be their last.
