Commuters of Glendale series

Glendale commuters come in all kinds. People bike, walk, bus, scoot, carpool, vanpool and drive. This series is intended to share the stories of commuters who demonstrate it’s possible to get to work without driving alone!

This month we are featuring Anneliese Hanson who takes the bus to Downtown Glendale every single workday! She works with Cigna located at 400 N. Brand Blvd in Downtown Glendale. Here is what she has to say about her commute.

What is the best part about your commute?

I love putting on my headphones, relaxing and letting someone else do the driving!

What/Who compelled you to begin commuting this way?

I am from Chicago, where using transit is the norm. I find that driving to work is stressful and doesn’t let me start my day on the ‘right foot’. I like knowing that I am helping lessen road congestion and helping the environment, while saving a TON of money on gas and car maintenance. I have only filled up once this month!

Do you have any interesting commute stories you’d like to share?

The buses here are so much cleaner and newer than other cities! And the drivers & passengers are well-behaved too.

Are there any commuting tips that you’d like to share with people working near you?

Try using the Los AngelBus app to find/ plan your bus routes!
