I didn’t own a car until my mid-twenties. As a young adult I had lived in Europe where transit was more than sufficient. When I moved to Canada I thought I could continue relying on transit to meet my needs; I quickly learned that while this was possible, it was not enjoyable. I would have to leave my house hours before work in order to arrive on time and often the roads were too snowy for the bus to even get up the hill to my house. As you can see from this photo of the angular bus interior, not a lot of of other people relied on transit as their main source of transportation. After about ten months of using transit I bought a car, which I have been driving happily to and from work every day since!
