    A bicycle should fit your needs.

    It's much less expensive to use a bus than own a car. However, having sex in the back of a crowded bus used to be more difficult than it was in he car.

    Public transportation is almost ALWAYS cheaper than buying and maintaining a car. Simply add up your daily costs! If you pay $3 for each bus ride a day that's around $90 a month--a car would cost a lot more per month, plus the maintenance. Even if your bus rides are twice that amount, it's STILL cheaper than a car payment. And don't forget parking that car, insurance on the car, and the regular maintenance costs of tires, oil, and gasoline. WAY cheaper to take the bus. Especially if you CAN. Not everyone can because not everyone has bus service that is efficient and widespread.

    Depends on where you are living---Suburbs, Country or Central City.---Busses do not run everywhere.   And also what your preferences for living or travel are.---You may NEED or want a car.----There may be no option.  Unless you wish to be a slave to schedules and confined to the inner city.----A Bus is obvious cheaper, but not to YOUR desired mode of Living.

    The bus will always be cheaper. With a car you are paying for the convenience and not having to sit next to someone with Covid 19.

    In some places it is not the car and the maintenance, but the parking and insurance that cost the most.  

    If I lived in the city, I would take the bus

    You don't want to take the bus unless it is a last resort every ride is a kangaroo court.

    the government figures it costs you 55 cents a mile to own and drive a car, so how far from 'work' do you live ???
