Day 25 of GED/HiSET in Five Months, cubic numbers, and public transit

Using public transportation in some cities can sometimes feel like solving a Rubik’s Cube: easy one day, not so easy the next, oftentimes. But the ability to use mass transit, and the availability and safety of buses, sidewalks, even frequently overlooked details like paths to the sidewalk, and sidewalk cuts, for those in walkers or wheelchairs, requires the same kind of community thinking that any democracy movement must practice.  Can cubic numbers and puzzles also teach us about finding the roots of transportation problems for others, which we ourselves may not have to worry about, but others do (like the lack of a cut or path that was no problem for me, during the day time, but presents a constant hazard for less mobile people at any time of day or night, at a certain Continuing Education campus…)?

2.) Share your  findings with us, and

3.) Write a book, story, blog post or tweet that uses those findings, and then, please tell us about it! If you write a book, once it is published please consider donating a copy to your local public library.

  1. Navigating public transit is definitely a learned skill. I grew up in an area with limited public transit, and thus, I had limited experience taking public transit. The first time I needed to take the local bus to a dentist appointment because I didn’t have a ride (I was a young teen without a driver’s license or car) and I was so confused by the bus schedule that I gave up and walked the 3+ miles in August heat. Another memorable learning experience was the time I had to take public transit to a job interview for the first time. I had absolutely no frame of reference for how long it would take and I wound up an hour late for the interview! I did not get that job.

    But the above can be solved with experience, at least. The system improvements and accessibility requirements you mentioned are also needed in the first place!

    1. Thank you, JYP!

      This is exactly why more people need to be using the public transit systems, and providing feedback of how to make it more useable, and safer to use as well.
      Stay safe,
