Taking the car out of the work equation?

As I mentioned yesterday, my car has been giving me headaches recently.
After feeling frustrated not knowing how to deal with my planned activities today without my 4 wheels, I started thinking that maybe I could redesign my work to be less car dependent.

How could I do that?

  • Is renting a car or using a service such as Zip Car the solution?
  • Should we have a time share for cars in the same way that entrepreneurs share offices?
  • Do I need a second car?
  • What is the most cost effective?
  • How much does it really cost monthly to own a vehicle (payments, insurance, gas, repairs, tolls...)?

Feel free to share your thoughts!

I discovered them on a Business Cards Collection part of Daily Poetics displayed on Flickr. Opened in June...
