“How We Roll” celebrates Metro Transit employees who commute and travel to many other destinations using transit or by biking, walking or carpooling.

How do you get to work?
My habits change throughout the year, depending on the weather and whatever's quickest. In the winter, I mainly take the bus. I live just south of downtown and catch the 11, then transfer to routes 5, 22 or the C Line to get to Heywood.
Other times of the year, I walk, take the bus or use a scooter. When they're available, I'll rent a shared scooter to get to the bus stop or complete my trip home or to the office. Recently, I also got a personal scooter. I live in a single-car household and am only a few miles from the office so all these other modes are easier and more convenient than driving.
What do you enjoy most about your commute?
I enjoy feeling the sun and walking through downtown as a part of my commute. It's a good time to listen to a favorite podcast or just have some quiet time before I get to work.
How do you get around outside of your commute?
Outside of my commute, I usually travel by car or use my personal scooter.
