Comments on: Question of the Week: How far do you live from where you work or play? Why? http://blog.epa.gov/blog/2008/06/qotwhowfardoyoulive/ The EPA Blog Mon, 14 Dec 2015 16:24:21 +0000 hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=4.2.1 By: CoverageCarInsurance@http://coveragecarinsurance.com http://blog.epa.gov/blog/2008/06/qotwhowfardoyoulive/#comment-6681 Sun, 30 May 2010 00:59:41 +0000 http://blog.epa.gov/blog/?p=119#comment-6681 I live about 10 miles from where I work. Fortunately, my friend only works 1 mile away from where I work so we go to our jobs and back with one car most of the time. This has helped quite a bit with the increase in the price of gas. It saves us some money.

We love the laid back atmosphere of KI and the fact that there is water everywhere. It is a different world than DC and worth the hour commute each way.

Right now I live about 30 miles from play and when i move, i will be within walking distance of most things i would want to do. Friends and Family will live withing 6 miles.

To save some wear and tear on my car (it doesnt really save much gas money), when i move, i will drive 15 miles and take the bus the rest of the way to work about two weeks out of the month.

i wish the bus stop was a lot closer to my home and the times were easier to catch the connecting buses. My work is in Denton County and they are working on making the public transit system easier and more accessible i believe. I also hope my work switches to the 4-day work week flex plan to help save on gas money and wear and tear.

I hate to limit where I go for fun, but in these days of higher gas prices we are sticking a bit closer to home. We originally moved there since we could not afford to buy a house closer to where I work and it was half way between my husband’s job and mine. He has changed jobs so he is less than 10 miles away now though. I can’t really change where I am though. I have looked for greener options. Ihere’s a new bus route but it would take me 2-3 hours to go that distance one way.

Our house is next door to our office in the 1st ENERGYSTAR 3 flat in Chicago which we built in our vacant lot. We typically take public transit downtown and are able to walk to many restaurants and stores. We ride one speed bikes around the city. We are very lucky!

Everytime I hop on a bike I am aware of how unsafe I would be if I had to bike to most places. A truly livable society would build bike lanes that have a true separation between bikes and cars. Many “bike lanes” are simply a painted line on the side of the road – yep, that’s gonna prevent a distracted driver from mowing down a cyclist. I don’t follow the laws when I’m on a bike. I bike on the sidewalk if there aren’t pedestrians there. I’d much rather get a ticket than be on the losing end of a bike/car accident.

I just moved there and have walked a few times when it is nice out. Right now it is blazing hot and I would be drenched by the time I got to work. Plus the traffic is a bit crazy when you are on foot or bike during the day hours. Since I play in the same area, I bike everywhere else.

My wife works only 7 miles away. We love where we live. My job is not the most secure. I want to keep my options open.
