I do not have a car because I cannot afford one. Social Security is not that generous! In my town not having a car is a real drawback. The bus service here is less than great. Buses run once an hour and do not go everywhere. BUT I can take my mobility scooter on the buses at least. If I could afford a car, I could afford taxis/uber.
There is no bus service here...where I live....glad to here you can take your scooter with you.
