    Oh geez, maintenance is what always killed me when I had a car. Now I figure if I pay less than say $250 a month (in a really, really, expensive month–usually it’s much lower) for Zipcar, taxis, or grocery delivery, I come out far ahead.

    Even a nice bike is what–$1200 versus $15,000 for a car? And that’s if you’re a serious bicyclist and would pay for that. Plenty around for less.

    You didn’t mention scooters though! A scooter will be my resort if I have to get a vehicle of some kind and can’t rely on public transportation.

      Yep Kerry, even Zip cars, taxis and public transportation don’t add up to what it costs to own car. Hmm, my husband Paul talks about getting a scooter if we go carless. Too bad scooters aren’t allowed on the canals though!
