Default Poll: Put your money where your mouth is

The gas price thread got me thinking: Would people actually give up their car if they could use an efficient and cheap form of public transport provided it was safe? So chime in!

Gotta have access to a car for emergencies (example: when I'm on call and have to go into work in the middle of the night to bring a critical server back online) and for long-distance trips where public transporation isn't viable.

I had to go with Door #3, revs. Port Authority here in Allegheny County is having severe financial problems which start up at the top with their big wigs raping the system (and those who use public transportation here, as our fares are among the highest in the country). I would use PT if I absolutely had to and I have already strongly considered selling one of my cars in the near future, as I see no end in sight to the oil fiasco.

I also picked #3...Public Transportation doesnt provide the service that would work with my weird hours....I do ride my bike into work when weather permits and when its not so hot that I would smell like a homeless person.

I was #3, too. If I lived with someone, I'd try like Hell to become a one car family.

I will always drive myself, regardless of gas prices. So I don't rent videos anymore or by the cheaper can of beans nowadays. I don't care. Its my car, I am in control and that is what matters.

Besides, with high gas prices, the Poor People are off the road. Good Ridance Says I, let them eat Cake!

I wouldn't give up my truck but I know how un-reliable public transportation is. So I'd rather just pedal to work and use my car for closer rides.

I would take option numver three also.

You have to have a car for emergencies. Not to mention public transportation will NEVER be 100% reliable. Buses have to make stops to pick-up and drop-off people and most don't run on the freeway due to it being unsafe.

Not to mention the only way to almost gaurantee you getting to somewhere on time is to drive yourself.

You don't need a car. You could fly Air Busch.
