Well! THIS trip home couldn't have worked out better!
I took the regional rail train from work to Fern Rock and connected with what I *thought* was an express subway train. It was actually a train for the Broad-Ridge spur line. For kicks, since it runs to 8th and Market, I took it. To make a long story less long, this unplanned decision allowed me to connect with one of the FEW buses that stops across the street from my house. Those run maybe once an hour, so whenever I catch one, I feel like I've hit the jackpot.
This cuts at least ten minutes off my commute home, since the closest buses other than this one all stop at least that far of a walk away.
Thank you, God. Color me happy. :o)
