D will start in a few weeks and I have some transportation questions. She will not have a car on campus.
- Do you need a bike to be comfortable? Can you get away without having one?
- Any good place to buy a used bike? Is there a place where it can be serviced?
- How much should she budget for a bike that is in good enough shape, but not too good as to be a target for thieves?
- Can a bike be used during the colder/wet months in winter? Would she need fenders?
- Is the Zipcar program a good option for when you absolutely need a car?
