Re: Should the city take back its buses and subways?

The economics of owning a car in NYC depend on where you take trips to, and how often. I owned a car continuously for 46 years. But gradually almost all our reasons to drive to places directly from home faded away as family died and/or moved, and we gave up our car, saving $5,000 a year in return for a handful of extra car rentals and taxis.*

But if you live in the outer boroughs, and have lots of places to travel to in the suburbs or elsewhere in the boroughs, the cabs or rentals can add up pretty quickly.

* Driving places while at a vacation destination that we flew to always required a rental car, so those aren't extra car rentals.
