Recent news story with SEPTA strike in Philly
This was taken from the 6abc news website, in reguards to the latest mass transit strike (SEPTA)
And They're Off...PHILADELPHIA-November 3, 2005 - There was this bicyclist, motorist, and taxi driver. No, it's not a commuter joke. Find out who's fastest
The SEPTA strike has inspired some commuters to test those three means of transportation. They wanted to know which mode was fastest, when traveling from 39th and Locust streets in West Philadelphia to the Municipal Services Building in Center City.
The cab finished first, in 14 minutes. The cost was $12.
The bicyclist finished two minutes later. It was free.
The driver finished third, in 22 minutes. But here's the punch line: the driver then had to pay $21 to park.
