I live without a car, by choice, in a suburb outside Portland. Spending less on car ownership lets me put that money into starting up my small business. I rely on the nearby light rail system to connect me to all the other great transit we have. I use it for meetings, errands, recreation, everything, along with occasional use of our car-share and bike-share systems.

Since car ownership is the second biggest expense for most households, public transit lets me save money and build my small business.
