Master of Arts in Professional Communication student Sarah Nelson has given us a new perspective on the typically mundane daily commute.

Nelson's public ethnography project Rituals, Rules and Ridership of the West Coast Express examines the experiences of commuters on a train that runs between downtown Vancouver and Mission, 70 kilometres east of Vancouver in the Fraser Valley.

Read Nelson's blog post in and watch a five-minute documentary she made (below), which was also featured in the online magazine.
