Welcome to my City-Bremen, Germany. When we moved here we opted not to get a car.People are shocked when they find out we are Americans without a car in Germany. But you don't really need one, the transportation of this city is very user friendly. Yes I do mumble and curse at time wishing we had a car, but those times are far and few between.
These are our main form of transportation Strasse Bahn-Sbahn or Tram. They go almost everywhere and are a convenient and comfortable ride.
The bus is also available and really convenient, we have a stop 3 minutes from our home. The only problem is making sure your watch and theirs are synced...unless you jump in front of it, once they leave the stop they aren't stopping!
This little guy is a life and time saver you use it for your fares and they auto take from your bank account. It's nice cause you never have to carry money to ride. Plus each family member has one and it's been cheaper for us than a monthly pass.
When the weather permits I ride my bike. Sometimes when the weather is not permitting we still ride our bikes......like this weekend to grocery shop. I rode my bike in the snow covered paths...I did a lot of ohhhh and OMG!! The whole time I was white knuckle riding I thought to my self I'm an AMERICAN we don't ride in the snow! And my husband was behind me saying ride faster....it's hard to flip him off when I'm holding on for dear life!
