LOL so true! That's a very Brooklyn thing too.

If I were 25-30 again, the cities that were highlighted would be at the top of my list.

San Francisco's transportation is great and you can use a website to see how long it will take the bus to come which is better than the bus schedule.

However, the cool things are the transportation may be offset by how expensive groceries are here.

But you can always afford the $45 month passes which allows you to ride everything that moves in SF (except the old fashioned cable cars which you get a $4 discount off of).

Please post later and tell us where you chose!

Last time I checked the cable car ride is free with the $45 MUNI monthly pass

As long as we're not talking about just big cities, any place you can walk everywhere. Boulder, CO would be one. As far as big cities go, New York, San Francisco, and Portland come readily to mind.

Boulder is also part of the RTD, Regional Transportation District. It is quite extensive. I would agree with Denver/Boulder being one of the best.

Yeah, for a city of it's size, the public transit in Denver IS quite extensive. Still, most residents drive cars and commutes can be long and congested. BO CO is a great biking/walking/bus city, though it is hardly in the same size category as Denver.

It's true that most residents of Denver drive cars. The last time I looked up stats on this, almost every city except NY has over 50% of its residents driving to work. Denver is quite walkable and bikeable, should you choose to do so. It's relatively flat in the city, and the weather is decent for walking probably 335 days/yr.
