    "the 122 and 121 takes me one shot, straight down town. its a relaxing commute as its a 50 minute commute. I can catch up on reading or chat with my 2 year old as we ride. if we ever miss the 122 or 121, we also take the 166 which takes is to the Burien Transit Center where we can transfer to an oncoming 122 or 121 or even a 123. transit is very handy in Des Moines!"
