I was inspired by this post to ask today’s Tell Us Tuesday question.
I would love to use my car less. Now that it is paid off there is very little financial sense in selling it, as it’s over ten years old and still in good shape. Like the writer of the original post, many of the services I use are in my neighborhood, and those that aren’t are easily accesible by public transport. The thing that’s the furthest away for me is my work- only about 3 miles from my home. I’m on the hunt for a cheap, used bike, something I wouldn’t mind being stolen (not that I’d want anybody to steal it though!) and something that I don’t mind leaving outside as I have no good place to store it inside. In September I’m going to make the commitment to ride to work once a week, and then go up from there.
Do you, would you, could you, live car free?
