I’m a writer and rider from Seattle, Washington. I’m obsessed with Toni Morrison, my hometown, and public transportation, in that order. In March of 2003, I exchanged my car keys for a bus pass—and I’ve never looked back. (You can read more about why in my This I Believe essay.) I’m married to a (car-free) bus nerd from the Motor City, and together we’re raising two amazing, bus- (and train!-) ridin’ babies.

The ultimate ride read
The Rebellious Life of Mrs. Rosa Parks is one of the most thought-provoking books I have read in a long time. I hope you’ll read it, too.
