from the Time Between series
I used to work an eight hour shift that ended at 9:00pm. After work, I caught the 38 bus right around the corner of 3rd and Market Street. By the time I got on, the bus was almost always empty except for a few commuters who prefer to sit closer to the back. The final stop was the Transbay Terminal. From there, I transferred to the 108 bus that took me home to Treasure Island. The commute was short but I found it soothing just staring blankly into the distance while the sound of the roaring engine drowned my worries away.
