Having a car would mean getting a job that pays about 10-15K more just to break even. There's no way I would take a job that pays the same or even 5K more because you're losing money at that point. A car is a huge money pit and you got to make thousands of dollars more in compensation just to pay for the extra overhead.

My commute doesn't even involve a bicycle but trains. Each day on the train, I see the cars backed up for 2 miles on the Turnpike while my commute is stress and traffic free. You would have to pay me an additional 20K to fight that traffic each day.
