I’d really like to go shopping, but don’t want to bother with parking or taking a bus, and cabs are never willing to wait for me. What other options exist?
Most people prefer to ride by car as compared to buses or trains. If taxi services are too expensive or not flexible enough for you, consider carpooling with friends or neighbors who shop where you do. Many communities also provide local transportation services that are very similar to taxi services, but depend on volunteer drivers to help reduce cost. The drivers also may help escort you from your home to the car, carry items for you and wait for you to complete your errands.
