MacArthur and High Street ~ Oakland

MacArthur & High Street

MacArthur & High Street

In the Laurel District, near the Laurel Bookstore. This stop use to be  on  High St.,  next to a bus stop and quick on-ramp to 580. Carpoolers say there’s a dramatic drop in drivers at the new location in front of the Laurel Foot Clinic, because its not convenient (drivers have to circle the long block) and its dangerous  (virtually no space between awaiting cars and traffic).  Two final riders and no cars in sight: the woman runs for the last bus around the corner;  and the man, reading Neale Donald Walsch ‘Conversations with God’ gets philosophical, saying we are enslaved by our fears, and faith keeps our options open.  He agrees with my comment that time is an illusion.  Just then, a car pulls up with one empty space just for him.  Two attempts at flyer-ing over two days totally 1& 1/2 hours for #116 total flyers.

  1. I drop a comment each time I appreciate a post on a website or if I have
    something to contribute to the conversation. It’s a result of the fire communicated in the article I read. And on this article MacArthur and High Street ~ Oakland | The Casual Commuter. I was moved enough to leave a thought 😛 I actually do have a couple of questions for you if it’s allright.
    Is it just me or do a few of the remarks look like left by brain dead visitors?
    😛 And, if you are posting on additional sites, I would like to follow everything new you have to post.

    Could you make a list all of all your shared sites like your Facebook page, twitter
    feed, or linkedin profile?
