First of all why the hell is it called Rush Hour when there are so many damn cars that you can’t move at a snails pace, let alone rush?
In my mind this is equivalent to owning a car, probably even a lot cheaper. Once you factor in gas, insurance and the price of parking downtown Calgary ($475 a month if you’re lucky or $20-$30 a day in most parkades) I’m actually saving money.
I haven’t taken a cab during rush hour before and now I know why:
Okay so it’s not a large amount of money but it’s almost twice what I normally pay and it took an extra 20 minutes to get home! For three blocks detour! When it normally takes 5 minutes and you’re sitting in a cab almost fifteen minutes later, three blocks from your departure point, I can tell you, you are kicking your own ass for being so stupid.
I think I’d rip my hair out if I lived in LA.
