Transport open thread…

Hey, I’m polling here since I’m facing the unenviable prospect of buying a new motor vehicle. My little wreck (see Beware 36 25 Interchange) totaled my civic, which is a bitch because I’d just installed a brand new pussy magnet.

Here’s what I’m thinking: Getting a scooter and sharing a car with my wife. I work from home, but not all the time. There’d be a lot of juggling of vehicles.

I’m wondering if anyone out there who lives in the general vicinity of downtown has a similar arrangement and if it works out OK?. This winter was a bitch, but also very much an anomaly. I think this could work, but maybe I’m sniffing too much wasabi & crack.

    Ride a bike. I live downtown and have been autoless for 4 years. Getting rid of my car was the best thing I ever did. Learn the public transit schedule for cold days.

    Trust me you won’t be sorry.

    Wow. Me and Mr. LeBoeuf-Little have been single-vehicle since before we got married. Of course, it helps that we live in Boulder, and I work alternately from home and in Boulder, AND my part-time job gives me an ECO-Pass. Usually I just don’t see the driver’s seat of the car for a few weeks at a time, is how it works out.

    Condolences on your wreck. I heard good things about the Honda Civics and Accords. Had a friend in high school who drove an Accord into the ground, and unless he’s totalled it, he may be driving it yet.

    I’m confused: why do you need a “pussy magnet” if you have a wife?
