Its ridiculous but if you dont have a car youre at the mercy of public transport which in my case doesnt even apply. I am outside their zone of service and need a ride to my work 2-3 times a week for the next 2 months while my husband and I share a car.
Any ideas???

That is a great idea for sure but seeing as though my commute will only be 3 miles and I will only need it 2-3 times a week for those 2 months it just seems like a big investment. Thank you though I saved their info just in case

My suggestion is to call taxi services (get a list from google in the lehigh valley) and see if you can negotiate a flat fee per ride.

What I would really do is find someone and just pay them five dollars each way. That's something that my kids would do. Editing - not soliciting, I don't live nearby, but really there's probably an unemployed/underemployed person near you that would be happy to do you a favor and earn a few bucks.

I would consider bicycle commuting if I were in your shoes. Three miles is not bad at all, great exercise. I realize there may be extenuating circumstances which prevent this, but wanted to throw it out there in case it would work for you.

the taxi service is incompetent. You will reach a miserable, suicidal, gruff man named Clair who will explain in a monotone voice someone will be there soon. And, you will wait for over an hr. I would find out where the lanta bus stops are, toughen up and walk to the nearest one.

Default I road my bike to work for more than a decade. It is not safe anymore in the Valley.

I road my bike to work for more than a decade, 10 plus miles each way. It is not safe anymore in the Valley. The last year I road kids on a school bus through a pen that hit my glasses and another car of thugs threw empty beer bottles at me one night. That was it.

We have huge number of hit and runs now, cars are not safe nor are pedestrians, the last hit and run ran over two people walking.

We have a huge number of uninsured drivers and that leads to the large number of hit and runs.

Driving in Allentown is just a little better then driving in a Demolition Derby.
