I’d go for it. When I moved to DC, I decided to give up my car. Now, between Bikeshare, Zipcar, car2go, and Uber, I can’t imagine why I’d need a car in DC anymore. For longer distance trips or weekend trips, we just rent cars from National Airport every now and then. Depending on the season and other factors, it’s sometime as cheap as $15/day. There is also Zipcar overnight ($40 flat rate from 6:30pm to 8:00am the next day). Even when it feels like I’m overusing Uber and car2go, it’s still cheaper than owning. Plus, in many ways, using Bikeshare and car2go feels more convenient than having my own car. They are everywhere.
