I left El Cajon at 11:45 a.m. with Michelle Wise for a doctor’s appointment in Escondido at 2 p.m. She had called the bus information line to find out what would be the best route. (A Google search said the trip should take about 40 minutes by car.)
After a bus ride, a trolley ride and another bus, it’s been three hours and Wise still hasn’t made it to the doctor’s appointment. I had to leave her and get on the bus going back the other way so I can try to make it to UTC for my next tagalong. Even that is probably not going to happen. Right now I’m feeling firsthand the frustration of depending on the system if you have any sort of schedule to keep. Check back later to find out what happens.
