Feeling Stressed?

If you live here in the Tampa Bay metro area, apparently you are. Forbes magazine has just released its list of the most stressful cities in the U.S. and, - you guessed it - we're on it.

Tampa came in at number 4 overall.

The magazine ranking considered factors like health, unemployment, long work hours, limited exercise and...wait for it...long commute times. Yep, sitting in traffic has an adverse effect on your general well-being, and makes you one stressed-out cookie.

Could transit help? Hard to say. But don't you think it might add to your quality of life to ride in comfort instead of white-knuckling it on the highway? Just sayin'.
