Public transportation has the power to throw a group of strangers in, on top of one another, the shoving, the sounds,the sights, the smells, and sometimes even the tastes: what better way to experience a new city, country or culture than by engaging the five senses? Having been stripped of my car, I am at the mercy of the publicly available transportation.This blog was inspired by Turkish public transportation: dolmuş, city-bus, inter-city bus, servis, tram, funicular, metro, planes, trains but absolutely never the automobile.
I’m a former Fulbrighter and native Bostonian, currently pursuing a Master of City Planning at UC Berkeley. I hope you’ll join me in my adventures. If you’re so inclined, I blog here now, because in addition to loving the dolmus, I love bicycles too.
