Hi, I also have this issue with  transportation to my water aerobics class.
Let me know how you do with ariel's ideas.  In a lucky scenario, which
depends on personal chemistry striking, I guess, you might find a work out
buddy near you and travel together.  I used to belong to a gym, and
sometimes this worked for me.  Ginnie

Thanks I never even thought of that option.  I will be sure to post that on 
the message board next week when school starts.
