...I actually got rid of my car last year. I live in an area where there are a lot of public buses anyway, so it really saved me a bundle of money without the car insurance, maintanance, etc..I simply pay about $75/month for unlimited bus rides each month and it works out. It is also going Green. I was initially judged and looked down upon around the schools when other teachers noticed me walking from the bus stop, but after I tell them its my choice to go Green and get more exercise, they applauded me for it. Go figure! But its a great idea to ditch the car totally if you live in an area with decent public transit options. I even take Uber sometimes when the wait for the bus is too long. Still cheaper than owning or leasing a car.
