    1. That sucks… But then again, I understand that in your home country, as in mine, there’s a lot of land for not that many people. So if you don’t live in a big city, it is ”normal” that people rely more on cars. Still, it sucks.


  1. If by public transport, you specifically mean Uber, then it isn’t so terrible. If you mean busses, trains, planes, etc., it’s nearly non existent. I live 4 miles from a train station, and 1 mile from a bus station. The bus only comes every hour and the train every 90 minutes, but never in a way that means you can get to the meeting point without being miserable for a LONG time. The bus will get you to the train about 45-60 minutes before the train you need. The train gets you back usually about 10 minutes after the bus already left, so you have an hour to wait. And to get to the bus stop safely, you need to hire an Uber. At that point, you might as well take the Uber to the train station, and if you’re doing that, you might as well just get them to take you the whole way. You’ll be back home before you ever even would have caught the train.

    Basically, you need an Uber app or a car to do anything ‘round here.

    1. Marla, I must say, I’m quite surprised… I thought you lived in the NYC area, and every time I visited, I was able to travel quite easily by the subway. Maybe it’s just that you live in a neighbourhood that doesn’t have downtown’s accomodations. I don’t want to be indiscreet, but if you don’t mind, in which area do you live?


      1. I live about 2 hours away from NYC. I live in the Burbs. The cities with the public transport are not even in my state. I am only 15 minutes away from another major city, and still, public transport is lacking significantly here. The transport I described is the transport I used to take to get to school so I could avoid driving in the city, which usually involved me driving to get to the transport and praying I didn’t miss i or I would have to drive.


    1. I am guessing that you don’t live in a crowded area… If I am wrong, I feel for you. I really like having convenient and cheap public transportation options . But when it’s not possible, it’s just too bad 😦
