I took the subway to work this morning for the first time since moving to San Francisco a year and a half ago. A budget crisis prompted the experiment, which I plan to do for 2 weeks. I figure I can save about $500-$550/month by dumping my car, and that kind of chump change is exactly what I need right now. My options were to move into a less expensive apartment and/or downgrade/get rid of my car. So far, I’m feeling pretty comfortable with public transportation from where I currently live. It feels great to get some fresh air in the morning and a morning walk!
