    Conrado's Bio:
    Born and raised in urban Madrid, lived in rural northern California and ended up in snowy suburban Minnesota. During the school year you'll find me firmly entrenched in a routine designed to develop my Psychology research skills, and during the summer you will probably not find me at all; in my free time, I enjoy going on trekking trips in the backcountry, adventuring through recondite countries and most importantly spending time with my family.

Landline

This past weekend I visited my cousin in southern Minnesota. Up until this time, every time I travelled to the cities I used Groome Transportation, a shuttle service with about 15 daily trips to the Minneapolis airport. Tickets are $55 a piece, which seems reasonable for a 3 hour drive and such frequent trips, but recently I discovered Landline: a full size coach service with 3-5 trips a day with an extremely interesting pricing strategy.  If you are one of the first three passengers to book with them, the Duluth-Minneapolis trip costs only $8.99! If you’re not so lucky (which I have been the three times I’ve used it so far, and I’ve only booked a couple of days in advance), tickets are still whooping $19.99, and if you are one of the last ones to buy the ticket, you still save over $15 when compared to Groome, at $29.99. If this wasn’t enough, they will give you a free soda and snack during your trip! Certainly, at only $8.99 with a snack and soda, one might wonder where they make profit–but all I know is that over the span of a weekend I’ve saved almost $100, and I had several seats to myself both trips. Now it seems like Minneapolis and St. Paul are closer than ever to St. Scholastica!!
