Post cities which are really bad transportation-wise, and tell us why. Pic related, it's Münster, Westfalia, Germany.
>great for cars
>great for cyclists
>so many fucking bicycles clogging up everything else
>central train station is currently being rebuilt, forcing people to walk 10 minutes from the main entrance to the trains
And worst of all
>no tram/light rail/rapid transit system
>buses take fucking ages to cross the city, are always crowded as fuck, even on Sunday mornings, and the rides are bumpy and zigzag through the pedestrian zones

this is admittedly my first visit to this particular side of 4chan, but if i know anything about 4chan, it's that it is filled with unofficial experts respective to the individual boards. anyway, i'm not entirely sure if that made sense or not but essentially i was paying homage to all of you because i trust that the majority of you know what you are talking about when it comes 'transportation,' e.g. bicycles, perhaps?
let's get right down to it, shall we... i've moved back into my folk's place after recently breaking up with mygirlfriend. well, the time has come, already, for me to get back on my feet and move out of my parent's house because, hey, it just has. rewinding just a tad: while my ex and i were still together, i got a dui and had my license suspended for a year. i had disparingly been reduced down to public transportation (and the rare occasion that she'd let me use her car, but that's irrelevant), in addition to the fact that i now found myself needing a bike very, very badly. well, it just so happened that my ex's mother and i ended up being pretty close and she had taken it upon herself to snipe this beauty (pic related) from a local garage sale for a measely $25 and gift it to me. FAST-FORWARD: as i mentioned earlier, the time has come for me to start saving up the means to moving out and getting my own place, but i am going to need all the financial gains i can get; selling this bike for a nice little profit - which is going to require me to know a little something-something before i can do so.
i couldn't find much on the internet about this here bike, which is why i've turned to you all in hopes that you could help me out a little by giving me any and all (hopefully) helpful and interesting history about the bike!
>tl;dr saving up enough money to move out of parent's house so i'm selling this bike (pic related) gifted to me by my ex's mother, but i need to know a little somethin-somethin about it, first, to do so.
thank you in advance!
Public Transit Commuting

How many people on /n/ commute to work every day via public transit (buses, trains, metro, ferries, etc)? How long is your commute? Is it convenient? Do you own a car otherwise?
>inb4 everyone is a NEET
I'm moving to Seattle in a year, and getting to work using the buses will take 1.5 hours, 3 transfers, and 3 different transit agencies. May as well just drive at that point.
