Right now we are at Brush Square at Downtown Station, announcing the winners of the Dump the Pump contest, and enjoying the upbeat sounds of the East Side Dandies. This is the first post of a few that you’ll see today, highlighting our top winners in the contest. This is the third-place entry from Adela Srinivasan, and her prize is three month’s worth of Capital Metro passes, two tickets to an Austin Chronicle “Paper Cuts” concert, a commuter gift bag and a free Car2Go membership. Congratulations!
My love affair with Capital Metro started way back years ago I first landed to US from Europe, and here I was- a city which seemed to have no boundaries (nothing l have seen before in Europe). What I really mean, is the way US cities are spread out- thanks for the abundance of space! And I loved it, but one thing that really kept me from enjoying Austin’s vastness was the fact that I did not have my European way of grabbing a bus and going places- and the fact that I could not drive was making me even more bitter!
