why? do you take public transport? where i live, bus fare is about $6.75 one way. the commuter train fare is about $9.00 one way. very expensive
We live in a very small rural town. We hoof it or ride bikes everywhere we go. We have access to a community car when we need it. Meaning we borrow it for whatever time we need it and pitch in on insurance and maintenance.
We avoid all forms of public transportation unless absolutely necessary.
Cars are only a big deal in the US and Canada. Even those with vehicles walk to the stores around here. Gas is around 1.50€ a liter, that will eat you up pretty quick.
But ask again after Wednesday...
I am not your rolling wheels, I am the highway
I am not your carpet ride I am the sky
I am not your blowing wind, I am the lightning
I am not your autumn moon, I am the night
Would have preferred a 2 door, but I need more room.
If I lived in NYC, I wouldn't own a car, but my country cabin is 25 kilometres away from any shopping areas, and my primary home is in a suburban area that makes a vehicle necessary.
If I do get a car it will be a Ford Focus, either an ST or RS model.
(Still a sports car but I don't want to look like one of those pathetic old clowns in a Porsche convertable.)
There's plenty of room for all God's creatures. Right next to the mashed potatoes!
