I take the bus to work or my boss picks me up on his way because it's convenient for him and it's good to be friends with the boss. If my boss is running early or not going into work, the bus gets me to work in under a half an hour, including the time it takes me to walk to the bus stop. To get to friends' places and so on I take the bus, or bum a ride. To generally get around I usually take the bus and walk.. I walk a lot. To get to other cities I fly or take the bus, because trains in America are not really a good form of transportation. I don't mind not owning a car because it saves me a lot of money, plus leads to me walking often, which is good for my health.
