Is it cheaper to travel by taxi than to travel by car? This question came to my mind the other day as I realized that several of the professionals that I know, despite being able to afford gas, insurance and all the other expenses related to the upkeep of a car, as well as themselves owning an experienced driver's licence...they've been choosing to be driven around via taxi instead. At first, I thought, "well, what's the point of doing that if you have to be paying by the hour?" But then, I came to also think that perhaps these people are doing the "smarter thing", in that they don't have to pay for gas, car insurance and the other things I highlighted earlier, that would come with them having to maintain their own vehicles. So, my question to you, therefore, is: Does it actually work out to be cheaper to be driven by taxi/cab, rather than to count the expense of maintaining your own vehicle? Or is it more or less the same difference? Please, let me know!
