I am from Colorado Springs, Colorado where I traveled to and from school and every where else, by city bus. My mother worked and went to school full time. At one point, our family of six didn't have a car as an option for anyone. My mother rode her bike when she could, and commuted by bus to Denver for work. When I graduated high school I immediately moved to Seattle. There I used the bus and train system for everything, and rode my bike delivering sandwiches. I actually didn't get my drivers license (or a car) until I was 24. I had no need for it and I could not convince myself to get one.
