Have you considered ridesharing? Services exist that you may not be aware of...
I was watching a television show where a member management of GoLoco was interviewed. Knowing that there is a government sponsored service in my area, I became curious about other possible services.
My first suggestion is to search the internet for: "ride share", and your city or area. When I did, I noticed that eRideShare and craigslist have services to try to connect those needing transportation with those who need some.
I live in an area with no public transportation, and I don't own a vehicle of any type. Speaking for those in a similar situation as I: it would be life enhancing for those who have transportation to share it.
