How Many Ubers and Lyfts Can I Take Before it Costs More Than a Car?

Late to the party on this one, but keeping my car in the city was one of the best decisions I ever made. It’s a negligible expense for me if I don’t include parking (my gas every month costs less than an unlimited monthly train pass and my insurance is a negligible expense). Even if I do pay for parking, it’s on average $100–120/mo and the extra hour or two I save on my commute every day is an extra hour or two that I can be at work actually making money.

Also, I can buy groceries in one or two Big Trips a month instead of having to do that thing where I go shop every night and come home with, like, a baguette and two sad onions that I don’t even want to cook because I’ve been schlepping around on public transportation all day and I’m tired.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
