Most city bus systems have websites with maps, schedules, and fares. You'll really want to study the system before just hopping on a bus. (So, you know how to get back from your destination). About 5 years ago, my northern VA suburb to D.C. (Pentagon-area) commute was almost $10 round-trip during rush-hours depending on the mix of bus and subway train that I took. Be aware that city buses often have variable schedules skewed towards rush hours and week-day service. Make sure you have small bills and change. I'd figure on anything from $1 to $3 as a typical busfare.How much is bus fare these days anyways? I haven't taken a bus in ages but I've been thinking about taking it to work a few days a week when I don't have to drop the kiddos off at daycare first.

Sounder train and all the buses were free.
Beat paying $150 a month parking.
In downtown Seattle it is free to ride the bus for everyone.

I moved to the dry side of the state and now my commute is 3.5 miles.
I haven't even seen a bus in months.
