Hmm. How can I select "two of the above"?

Do nothing differently, and Bike to work.

I've been biking to work since I graduated in May, and I biked to school for a year before that.

Have been biking once a week to work at 5.5 miles one way. Will up that to at least three days a week and just stuff work clothes (office type) in a back pack. When my office moves downtown into the State Gov't complex my bike ride will be about 1 mile (which is why I live where I do). Cheers to those who are finding a better way (or already were).

No problem. Chose an apartment on a good bus line. I'll just ride the bus more often than I already do to help conserve for people who are having a harder time adjusting.

I have a 4-Cyl 94 Toyota Camry THANK GOD...Good on gas like any other Toyota...But it's already just about $4 but we are in the South and you have to drive in the South or you won't be going anywhere cause transportation sucks

I'm with transitman. I've been driving every day for over a year, just using the bus when my car was being serviced.

Bought two CATS passes last week. I'll be taking the bus at least half the time until gas gets back to around $2.50. If gas got to $4 I'd probably only use my car if I know there's an errand I need to handle while at work.

The real acid test of change, will be if we see the uptown parking lots lower prices to induce commuters back. B)

Retired, don't need to drive too much. Will work part time at an elementary school because of the hours I work 9:15AM to 1:00PM it would be hard to find bus serice where I go.

Well I just got a new job and my commute is much longer now. it will be a 40 minute drive from Greensboro to just north of Lexington off of hwy 52. So I have to drive all the way to Winston-Salem then another 10 miles or so south on Hwy 52

I have a 02 Honda Civic and I live 7 mins from work, so I fill up about every 3 weeks usually. If I'm driving for work (which is from Winston to Eden, GSO, Mooresville, or CLT) I get reimbursed so it doesn't really affect me a whole lot especially since they just upped the mileage rate.

Cityboi, that's one heck of a commute...I used to drive to GSO and hated every moment of it. But this was prior to the additional lanes on I-40. My roommate drives from Winston to Lexington everyday...be glad you avoid most of the bottleneck of 52 from I-40 to University Pwky...around 5 it's just like 40 used to be around the airport...a parking lot.
