My husband can ride mass transit for free because he is a student of the university. We payed the two bucks for me to ride the bus and all four of us (our kids were free) went on the bus to the university library. The baby was so scared she was shaking in the beginning, one man moved away from us, we can only assume he didn't like her fussing. She quickly calmed down and enjoyed the bus ride with her brother. I felt so urban riding mass transit carrying my baby around in a sling. After buying my husband's text books we jumped on the train and went "downtown" for dinner, at a chain restaurant. We went home a different way, and ended up having to wait 30 minutes for the bus back to our neighborhood. By this time it was late and dark. My son assumed we were lost. We tried to explain we weren't lost. He had fun the whole evening, until we had to wait for the bus. Which he still had fun, but he refuses to admit he had fun, and says no, it wasn't fun, we got lost. It was complete experience, we even met a few characters. It was a fun night, even if we had to take our kids with us on a friday night, it was actually probably more fun with them, since we were on the bus and the train. Buses and trains are always more fun with kids to be excited about them.
