Portraits of commuters — Metro Bus 41 to Lake City

Metro bus 41 to Lake City was packed with people. I got on at Convention Place and stood on the back of the bus. In front of me was Ryan, a tall young fellow checking his cellphone.
The trip to Northgate Transit Center only took about 15 minutes and I approached Ryan to show him my sketch after we arrived.
He kept walking as I explained what I do and handed him my business card. Why do you take public transportation? “It’s good for the environment. I don’t have to park. It’s easy. I can relax in the morning,” he said.
Thanks Ryan!
