remember I am getting a season pass so no lift ticket bus packages. Think about it if you do 10 trips a season, that's 85 x 10 = 850 (which is equals to the hunter season pass). and I do well above 10 trips.
right well my problem is basically, parking! and where I live people also scratch cars etc. I have had two cars and everytime I said this is the last time in this city, so thinking what to decide.
maintenance, insurance, fuel these all on my mind but how often you go? once or twice a month or quite frequently, because $50 to the mountains close to NYC but $65 to Vermont (bus only) if you go say 5-6 times a month, on the weekends, it will be something around $400-$500 on bus fare
and zipcar is a no-no, they are very expensive, free-fuel is stupid since you can do 180 a day so where is the benefit in that, it's only good if you need to drive somewhere for 2 hours and come back, a 4 hours ride
I always find cheap car rentals on kayak
most transportation have bus-only options, so there's that if you're going for a season pass. also, you can do a bus + ticket package, then scalp your ticket to someone else to lower your costs.
i live in brooklyn and i have my own garage so owning a car isn't as big of an issue for me; if you're in manhattan i can totally, absolutely understand.
