Do you only have one vehicle for your family? If so, how do you make it work when you both need the vehicle?

We're thinking of getting rid of one of our cars since DH just uses it to get to work and then it sits in the lot all day. I don't really go anywhere so I don't even need a car most days.  I can just drive him when I need the car.

This. If it's an emergency, we get a cab or a ride.


Quoting TableforSeven:

We are a ZERO car family.  We walk or use public transportation.

We are a one car family. We live in an urban area right by BART (train) and the train goes to downtown SF where I work. Its much quicker and more convenient than driving into the city. This also frees me up from any school drop off/pick ups. I pretty much only drive on wkds since we can walk everywhere from our place.

Yes we are. We work opposite hours so when he gets home, I take the van to work.

Yes, emergencies we have friends to help...or a cab as a last resort.

Yes and usually it's fine but now we have 2 flat tires and dh is using his job's truck until the rim (which I told him to get a new one 2 weeks ago) comes in and he's supposed to get a new tire for the other one tonight after work.

I'm like you, I don't have the need to go out much so I don't need a car but I'm seriously considering getting a second one because of this and dh's insistence that he can "fix" things, like the cracked rim.
