Well riding the bus you never have to worry about parking, but you'll have to walk to everywhere you want to get to always. I only ride the bus and relinquished my license a few years back. What I've experienced is you'll need your car for emergencies or you'll have to ride a cab which is very expensive or rely on someone for a ride. One great thing about our bus system which is reliable and some runs 24/7 is you'll always have to give yourself 45 min. - hour ahead to get to any appointments either way. It is inexpensive $60 for a bus pass where you can ride anywhere for the monthly bus pass anytime rides. When it rains is when I miss my car the most or when I got very heavy things to haul home from shopping too.
