To Have a Car or Not
« on: July 18, 2007, 03:36:58 PM »
Hi folks,

I'm moving to SD from out of town. Does anyone know how convenient it is not to have a car? Are most people going to bring theirs or buy one?

I found an apartment not too far from the trolley but I'm not sure how convenient it'll be getting to school, dragging books etc., or even if the public transportation system is reliable.

Those that will have cars how are you budgeting for gas, insurance and parking. Anyone willing to share what their range looks like?

It would suck not being able to venture far from my apartment but I will be saving some money without a car.

Is it worth not having a car in SD?

Thanks

You'll want a car. It will be a little bit of a hike from teh trolly station. If you are not against walking (uphill), then you can get away with the trolly for school. However, San Diego is designed for the automobile, you'll want one.

get a car...i think the only way to really survive without one is if you live on campus...the trolley station is not that close to school...hauling your books will be a pain in the ass
