I’ve been taking public transportation all of my life. Even at a young age, my sisters and I would take bus trips “downtown.” Even now, when my wife has our car, I take OC Transpo‘s #88 bus to, and sometimes from work. One thing I’ve never done though is take the bus for it’s entire route. That is, of course until this week when I did it for my 52 in 52 challenge.
At first the plan was to ride my regular bus, but learned that the #88 stopped 84 times!! Not wanting to be driven around Ottawa all day, I chose route #91 instead, because it only has 22 stops. Besides, the scenery is much, much better!
Riding the 91 bus also gave me the chance to go to a magical place I’d never been before… Place d’Orleans!!!
Of course I had to take photos and video to document my trip, so it was lucky that the #91 was a double decker bus!
Seriously though, there were some pretty cool views from the second level as we drove down the road.
The round trip took around 2 hours to complete, so by the end I was ready for it to end!
Lucky for you I cut the trip down to about a minute in the below video!
