Man About Town: Transport Tips For The City
Getting around in a city can be a chore at the best of times. Depending on where you live, public transport might not be much of an option. But you have places to go and people to see, so what’s the best way to go about it? Here, we’re going to look at the discussion of getting around town, your options, and why it might pay to think a little more about you’re getting from point A to point B.
Pump Those Legs
One of the reasons that city roads can be as congested as they are is that people take their cars out for trips when they would be better left behind. A five-minute drive might be a ten-or-fifteen minute walk, but it’s not difficult to leave ten minutes earlier to arrive at the same time. Let’s not forget all the health benefits, either. It might not be the most intense exercise, but it still burns some calories and, most importantly, helps you maintain your range of motion, especially as you get older. There are walking apps that can help you better navigate your city and even find spots that you don’t take the time to appreciate during your driving commute.
Get The Right Wheels
If walking could take you anywhere in the city conveniently, then we could end right here but that’s, unfortunately, not the case. Most city dwellers still rely on cars, but they may not be relying on the right ones. When choosing your auto of choice, try to think more about what factors make it better suited to the city. A good city MPG is one factor, but it’s not the only one. Cities are cramped, tight spaces, so the kind of safety features you can find in luxury SUV options are well worth considering. The storage space they provide is just as important, for all you entrepreneurs or hobbyists who need to be able to bring your whole setup with you. Lastly, think about how much space your vehicle actually takes up, as well. Finding parking in the city can be a nightmare, so a more compact vehicle will definitely solve a few headaches.
Become A Biker
We’re talking about cycling, not motorcycles, here. The sad fact is that cycling in the city can be difficult because most cities do not have cycling-exclusive lanes and navigating the cramped traffic can end up stopping you in your tracks much more often than you would like, not to mention dealing with traffic fumes. However, if you need to get somewhere when the roads are a little less busy or you’re heading through residential areas, it’s much faster than walking, while still being more eco-friendly and better exercise than riding in the car.
Walking or cycling (if it’s convenient) is something we should all try to incorporate a little more in our lives, both for the sake of our health and to better appreciate where we live. However, when you need wheels (and you will need wheels), we ought to be more conscious of what autos we choose and whether or not they truly fit the city lifestyle.
