Transportation

Do you own a car? What kind? If not, why not and how do you get around. If you use public transportation, what do you do about car seats?  What is the cost for your transportation?

I live in a rural area, so there is no public transportation option for me.  I have a 45 minute commute to my job each day.  I own a 2003 Pontiac Vibe and I love it!  It's the best car I've ever owned.  Even though I was concerned about buying it the first model year out, I have never had any problems with it.  I hope to have it several more years.  I'm sad that they stopped making the Pontiac brand.  I'll probably buy a used one when I'm ready for a new car again.

I live in Manhattan so we use a combination of public transportation & taxis.  We've only had our daughter on the bus, not the subway yet - we mostly use the Baby Bjorn for that.  And of course we use a carseat in taxis.

Public transportation is $2.25 one way.  We live in Harlem, so taking taxis downtown can be expensive.

I have a VW Routan.  It's great when sitting in bumper to bumper traffic on the LIE for hours....

We have a 2005 Honda Civic special edition. I LOVE that car. We bought it new so I hope it lasts a long time. We have had great luck with the car to...not being a maintenance nightmare like the 1/2ton truck we have.

We have a Honda Accord '98.  It's just temporary because all of the kids don't fit..only the carseats fit in the back.

If I have to go to the city, I usually use the subway.

I have lots of different transportation. A boat for the water, snowmobiles for the snow, a 4x4 and car.

I could never rely on public transportation living in the South Towns of WNY. They don't run too frequently. If I lived in the city of Buffalo I wouldn't rely on the public transportation either. I like having the freedom to come and go as I choose.

As far as cost, well, that just went up once again thanks to our inept Government!
