This week Frank’s question is about public transport.

If you live somewhere that its essential to own a vehicle for day-to-day living, if public transportation where you live were to suddenly be improved to the point that it became a viable alternative to taking your own vehicle, would you still feel the need to own a vehicle? On the flip side, if you do live where there is decent public transportation, do you still find it necessary to own a vehicle?
I live in the city. We have decent public transport here. We have lots of buses, and loads of taxi’s. We even have a decent train service that goes outside the city to a couple of locations.
I don’t own a vehicle because I cant drive, because I am blind.
If I could drive though, I think I would own one. It would definitely save me a fortune on taxi fares, as I use taxi’s a lot of the time to get around.
There is only a spiradic bus route in my part of the city, and the buses only come once an hour, so taxi’s are just easier all around if I want to go somewhere.
