At the moment it would be difficult. Public transportation does not go everywhere I need to go, especially to where I work & the city buses do not have bike carriers on them, yet. Also my wife is currently unable to ride bike & we both work 40 hours a week & have only one vehicle.
One thing we did do is get rid of our second vehicle. Sometimes it is difficult to deal with that when ours breaks down & we do not have a back up or when our work hours are differant. But we make do.
The vehicle we have is a 1998 Jeep Cherokee. It is ideal for us. We have no kids, it is not a large SUV. It is great for our active life. It carries my bike easily on a tray style receiver rack, it has enough space for camping gear or luggage for road trips & the dog. At the time it was considered a small to mid size SUV when we bought it.
