So this is the required "thinking about car lite" post. midwestern smallish town suburb mom of two little kids. Thinking of getting rid of one car. Hubby drives 50 miles one way commute, so have to have at least the one, although he's working up an argument for telecommuting. But that's another post. We're out of the main part of town, so no public transit here per se, but the closest bus stop that is IN town is about 2 miles away. How feasible is it to walk there with a 5 year old and an 8 year old to catch the bus if weather would prevent us from riding our bikes on in to where we need to go? How long would you all imagine this might take? I know, we probably need to do a dry run just to see, and we will do that, but am curious for those of you car free if you walk to get to a transit stop, how far is reasonable, especially if you have kids.
Thanks so much!
