My wife and I recently sold both of our cars and picked up one car for double duty (she drives to work, I take transit). Mostly this was because before we were married, we both had our own cars... but it doesn't hurt that to rent an extra parking spot in downtown toronto costs $150-$200 per month; and we really didn't need the extra car. No to mention, parking downtown is really expensive.
I have a toy car that I can use from time to time if need be, but it sleeps mid-town at my father in law's house.
I would consider a vespa or something similar... but really, we do need a car to get around on the weekends.
So what would it take to get you out of your car? What would it take for you to be forced from your car?
- Cost of gas?
- Cost of parking?
- Cost of insurance?
- Committment to being energy conscious?
- Never get rid of your car, regardless?
