Commuter With Worst Daily Commute Wins Limo Ride From D.C. TV Station
A Washington D.C.-area woman who suffers the worst daily commute in the area (according to a local television station) was awarded a limousine ride in WTOP’s inaugural Commuter Idle contest. Brenda Wells, who lives in Sparrows Point, Md., with her three children, won the limo ride recently and was spared at least one day of what appears to be a very grueling daily commute. In addition to the limo ride, she won $1,000 cash to help pay for gas. By all accounts, she’ll need it, as her commute involves a car as well as train and bus rides to get to and from work each day.
Five days each week, she leaves her home very early in the morning and drives to Baltimore-Washington International Thurgood Marshall Airport to catch the train, paying $3 in tolls each way. Then she hops on the 4:48 a.m. MARC (Maryland Transit Administration) train into Union Station in the District of Columbia, where she waits ten minutes or so for the Metro train. She takes this train to a stop where she switches to another train, which takes her to a bus, which then transports her to her office. If everything is running on time, she endures a five-hour commute round trip five days a week. She was understandably very happy to hear that she had won the limo ride.
"I woke up with a lot more excitement," she said as she stepped out of the limo with nine-year-old Daniel, seven-year-old Sophia and three-year-old Anna.
"The peace of mind was the best thing [about the limo ride.] I didn’t have to worry about what my next thing was. I didn’t have to worry about ‘I’m going to miss my bus, I’m going to miss my connecting piece.’"
