I've been carless going on 6 years now and I love it. As a downtown resident it makes sense to walk and use public transit, cabs, town cars, trains, etc. I save a ton of money and spend it on things that are generally awesome. I'm 29 and not married, so hey, it seems like the obvious way to go. However, I still get TONS of shit from friends- suburban and otherwise. It doesn't matter how much money I save, they still cannot fathom that lifestyle or would most likely say the things I'm spending it on are frivolous, hedonistic and indulgent. Anyone have any encouragement here? There are almost no articles online about how being carless in a metropolitan area is a sound "investment." I guess I just need more comebacks... Thanks in advance!
