Comforting and Warm Gifts for the Transit Commuter

Comforting and Warm Gifts for the Transit Commuter

I hope you had a wonderful holiday and enjoying the new year so far! It’s been a great few weeks of events, including a new commute to my day job on the weekdays. I’m glad it became a shorter commute by bus, but these days it requires attentive coordination during my sleepy mornings to make sure I hop on the right train. It can get pretty chilly waiting at the bus-stop, especially during cold and dark evenings. I found that in order to bear the cold, I make sure I bring accessories to layer up to keep warm, and find ways to stay comfortable and dry.

Here are recommended additions for loved ones that want to stay cozy during their daily commutes by transit.

I pass a large park in order to get home, so it can be pretty dark as the cars drive by. I like to take out my headphones and make sure I’m actively looking around, just in case someone by car doesn’t see me right away when I’m crossing streets. You can incorporate fashionable tights with reflective lines like these ones from Nordstrom, or add other reflective accessories.
