One of the benefits of being Officially Old is that I am now eligible for Miami-Dade Transit’s Golden Passport. It allows me to ride the county’s Metrorail system for free, and for $11.25 a month, I can park at a nearby garage and take the train. So instead of spending $30 a week on a tank of gas and driving 38 miles round-trip (not to mention fighting the legendary traffic of Miami), I will have a commute of 12 miles round-trip to the station. The Metro Mover drops me practically at the front door of my office in the morning and a shuttle van drops me off at the station in the afternoon. Meanwhile, my car is in a secure and covered parking lot.
I could get very used to this.
