    My Footprint Is Tiny

    My carbon footprint that is. I can drive, I just happen to live in a suburb of NYC which has public transportation on every corner and a train station a few blocks away. There's no need for a car here unless you want to get fat. Everything is walking distance if not a few bus...

    Don'T Need One

    I don't own a car. I prefer riding my bike. Let's face it, gas prices are going up, but your paycheck isn't. If I do decide to get a car, it will be an electric one. I will only use it when weather conditions are extreme, or if I have to go somewhere far. People have to...

    I am sitting outside of Target waiting

    Automobile ownership.... I used to do that. For the past 6 months I have been without my means of getting from point a to point b in a matter of minutes. But this has by no means stopped me from getting where I need to go. The moment my car died I was terror stricken at the...

    I do not own a car and I do not have a license

    because I'm afraid of dying in a car accident because of how common that actually is. I feel homeless sometimes or feel that people may think I'm homeless. In the city I live in no one walks but people who are selling something that shouldn't including themselves. I have been...

    No License, No Car, No Worries.

    I don't drive. It used to be because I was told that no one could pass the test and it was impossible so don't waste money on it. Now there are many reasons why I choose not to conform. It's because I can't afford it: I'm a student with no job. I worked over the summer at a...

    Don't Want A Car

    I don't own a car because I don't want one, nor have I ever wanted one. It's a waste of money if you live in a city with good mass transit (which I always do) and I DESPISE car culture and all the hassles that go along with owning a car. Oh, and I am a financial professional with...

    Car Free Since 2008!

    I gave away my car in 2008 when it became an obstacle to my relocation to graduate school. A masters degree later, I'm feeling the pressure to buy a car so I can find a good job and pay my debt down. I recently moved from the San Francisco Bay Area where I got around...

    I don't own a car and I'm debating this

    lifestyle choice but I'm terrified of driving and being a passenger in any car that's not with an experienced driver. I wonder if the bus is coming earlier or if that's not my bus. I seem to manage just fine planning my day. I can make a few stops and I have time to write. I'm...
