I work in Sac and take teh Amtrak daily. Bus would be a little cheaper but would take longer. Committing to the commute and buying a monthly train pass saves a lot of $$$. My per-trip cost is a little over $2 each way. Plus, many large employers will reimburse some amount of the cost of commuting by train or bus to incentivize doing your part to reduce pollution. With all of this, I pay about $1 each way to use Amtrak. Biking to/from the train stations is simple &amp; easy and although there are lots of bikes on the train, conductors are tolerant of bikes in excess of racks as long as they don't block the pathways. Finally, the 8:02 morning train is often late but rarely more than 10 minutes. The 9:17am train is opften a disaster but there is a 9:30am Amtrak bus that is quick &amp; they accept train passes. The return trip from Sac is always on time. --["Users/Dora5"]</span> </td> </tr> </table> </div> Car-free in Davishttp://daviswiki.org/Car-free_in_Davis2008-08-11 18:08:02JasonAllerlink fixes <div id="content" class="wikipage content"> Differences for Car-free in Davis<p><strong></strong></p><table> <tr> <td> <span> Deletions are marked with - . </span> </td> <td> <span> Additions are marked with +. </span> </td> </tr> <tr> <td> Line 269: </td> <td> Line 269: </td> </tr> <tr> <td> <span>-</span> ''The nice folks down the street do exactly that, and it's interesting to watch the procession go by '' --["StevenDaubert"] </td> <td> <span>+</span> ''The nice folks down the street do exactly that, and it's interesting to watch the procession go by '' --["<span>Users/</span>StevenDaubert"] </td> </tr> <tr> <td> Line 298: </td> <td> Line 298: </td> </tr> <tr> <td> <span>-</span> * ["JoRo"], Car-free since 2000, ["Davisites" Davisite] </td> <td> <span>+</span> * ["<span>Users/</span>JoRo"], Car-free since 2000, ["Davisites" Davisite] </td> </tr> <tr> <td> Line 300: </td> <td> Line 300: </td> </tr> <tr> <td> <span>-</span> * ["ImNotABear"], Car-free since 1999, ["Davisites" Davisite]<br> <span>-</span> * ["ArlenAbraham"] -- ex-student, car free since 2004<br> <span>-</span> * ["PhilipNeustrom"] -- doesn't have a driver's license. used to ["Inline skating" roller blade] everywhere 'cuz he's a cyber punk. now he bikes.<br> <span>-</span> * ["WilliamLewis"] -- Student.

(unfortunately).<br> + <br> + I just returned after nearly 12 years of living on the other side of the planet (Ankara, Turkey), and I can only say that the availability of convenient mass transit in the urban areas of California is absolutely pathetic compared even to developing countries. True enough in Davis (in which I have lived and/or worked in the years 1978-1983, 1986-1993, 2001-2004, and since July 2007) one can certainly deal with intracity commerce and living on bicycle and foot alone, as long as one is a homeowner or a renter who doesn't change dwellings and who works for the university (living in the Davis bubble?). But isn't that the rare individual? For intercity travel, I have relatives in Galt and Rocklin, and it takes 40 min by car and on my schedule to get to either of those places, 2-3 hours trying to get there without a car and on some mass transit system's own particular schedule (often Sundays and holidays excepted).<br> + <br> + I don't have a car as of this moment, but it's not by choice after just getting back from 3 years abroad. The feeling of powerlessness, while certainly not daily, and sometimes not even weekly, hits one square in the face when one is faced with a crisis of some kind. Yes, the monthly payments, the insurance, the outrageousness of gasoline prices, the depreciation...I am sure it all adds up to eating $500-800 a month of my income if I joined the auto club today---with an environmentally conscious hybrid, of course---but I sure do feel better when I don't have to spend an inordinate amount of time going from point A to point B. And no, despite being free to get things done when someone else is doing the driving (train, bus, etc.) I don't catch up on "Harry Potter" or that mass spectrometry journal article I have been intending to read, unless I want motion sickness. --["Users/MaviGozler"]</span> </td> </tr> </table> </div> Car-free in Davishttp://daviswiki.org/Car-free_in_Davis2007-07-16 12:45:47WilliamLewis(quick edit) <div id="content" class="wikipage content"> Differences for Car-free in Davis<p><strong></strong></p><table> <tr> <td> <span> Deletions are marked with - . </span> </td> <td> <span> Additions are marked with +. </span> </td> </tr> <tr> <td> Line 294: </td> <td> Line 294: </td> </tr> <tr> <td> <span>-</span> * ["WilliamLewis"] -- Student.

Thanks! And, for the record, Davis water is slightly toxic. If you read the [http://cityofdavis.org/pw/water/WaterQuality.cfm report] the city sends out to the residents, the water does test positive for carcinogens, although the findings are below levels considered dangerous to one's health according to the government group doing the testing. Thus, buying un-toxic water is more a necessity than a trend in Davis whether you have a car or not. And, it's probably a typo, but cheers for pointing it out rather than fixing it on a open-code site. --["ImNotABear"]<br> - More people probably drown than get cancer from bad water, so I don't think it is particularly dangerous. Did you know that sunlight is a carcinogen? Do you have a degree in environmental toxicology? Because I don't and I have other things to do which is why I am willing to take the government's word on this. Also, I assumed "helmut" was not just a typing error because it was used several times. --["NickSchmalenberger"]<br> - Could I move these comments to ["Drinking Water"] where this is already discussed more?

Apply the Car-free credit and you may find that buying in smaller quantities from local stores will save you on your bills overall.<br> - Tempted to take an out-of-town job? Add back in all those car expenses and see if will truly be worth it in car transportation costs.<br> - <br> - Note: The Car-Free credit must be applied to your ''overall'' monthly or annual expenses to be used for budgetting.
