Now that I have my voice back, I have started recording the Green Quick Tip podcast again.
Here is my seventeenth episode which is about utilising public transportation.
GQT 17 – Get out of your car and on to the bus, tram, or train. Public transportation can move more people with less impact to the environment, and a lot cheaper on your back pocket compared to driving a car after everything is taken into consideration.
If you enjoyed the episode, please feel free to leave a comment.

You forgot to mention that when you are on public transport – smile at someone. When i first arrived in the big smoke from the sticks 25 yrs ago i actually was told not to look at people and stop smiling. Really??? I didnt pay attention and im still smiling and chatting to stranger at every opportunity.
I assume Gav that this not having to drive gives you about 30 minutes X 2 each day to read, or use your ipad or as i suggest, meet people. Gosh, now that you are a TV star im surprised that are not lining up for autographs. When i had that Tupperware party not long ago, a friend brought her “train companion”. It was the first time they had socialised “off the train”. She was lovely and now we have a new friend. I love your little green tips and your deep voice in the intro make my toes turn up. Cheers Mate.

Lynda, one question. Does that mean what I think it means?
I dont know what you are thinking Gav? But if you could just learn to speak French or Italian and do your podcast in that id appreciate it. LOL Only joking Kim, he’s all yours. Enjoy your weekend, both of you.
I really struggle with this one.. We live in a tiny hamlet in a rural area. We have a dial a ride bus, that can be booked days in advance, but to be honest the cost and lack of convenience is prohibitive. There is a bus at 7.20 am to the big town, 45 minutes away (by car, longer by bus!) that returns at 6.30 pm, for ‘commuters’, but it doesn’t go my way! I also need my car for work, as I travel around the county daily to different appointments. So for now I keep running a small car. I would love to give it up and I think once I stop working I shall give it serious thought. The lack of public transport in rural areas can be very isolating for elderly people and young families especially.
Gave up my license about 5 years ago, and catch public transport everywhere. Never liked driving anyway but wanted to do my bit for the environment. I live in a small city so unlike Nina the public transport system isn’t too bad. Also, if everyone used public transport and their feet the roads infrastructure would be less costly so government funds could go elsewhere.
