If I take the car (diesel) to a region one hour drive away, then walk there for three hours and then ride back home, *frequency* wins for the car (as does distance), but time wins for human power. Dilemma: what to choose …
Walk to work daily and pretty much anywhere that I normally go within my city. Bus to the outer parts of the city. Train to near-to-mid-distance cities (it's my preference for anything I can reach within 10 or so hours by train) and flight beyond that.
Come to think of it, though, I haven't gone anywhere beyond walking distance since the start of the pandemic.
Still using my VW Golf to travel to chorus rehearsals, my trailer up North, and to see my parents in Waterloo. Still loving driving a car with a turbo. So much fun at the on-ramps when the tailgating doofus disappears into the distance. :D
Second choice is my bicycle .. with both panniers, I can move a lot of groceries. I also use it for trips around my T.O. neighbourhood, smiling as I pass the cars while driving in my protected bike lane. :)
I would be interested in getting an electric car, but right now they're out of my price range, and I haven't seen good things about the build quality of the Tesla. My preferred form factor is a hatchback (I've had three VW Golfs and a VW Fox wagon since 1987), and I haven't seen that many eCars in that form factor.
