I don’t own a car. My sister does, but I’ve only driven it twice. I did, however, have a car two weeks ago, when my father went to Frisco. Normally, I take the bus, and have the advantage of a payroll deduction bus pass.
No, I don’t miss the car at all, because on the first day I had the use of it, I burned 25CAD in gas, and another 10 in parking. The bus pass costs me 25CAD per pay.
Here in Ottawa, we have the Transitway, (cite link not working :smack: www.octranspo.com ) which is a bus only road.
I have a grocery store within 10 minutes walk of my house, the transitway is a 6 minute walk away, and if I get real lazy, I can walk for about one minute to the nearest connector bus stop.
There is also a bar right across the street, but I don’t go there (long story - ask scule, so I go to a place about a 5 minute walk away if I want a beer.
Otherwise, anywhere I go, I walk.
