Some towns aren’t car towns. If you live in a place like New York City, San Luis Obispo, or small towns like Winter Haven, Florida, you might discover that a car is more trouble than it’s worth. On the other hand, there are cities like Albuquerque where there’s not much public transportation to speak of, and everything is spread out, so you need a set of wheels if you don’t want to be constantly begging friends and family members for a ride.
Lees Summit, MO is one of those cities that can go either way. It’s an incredibly walkable town. There are plenty of affordable spots in the Downtown area, so if you work in the same neighborhood, there’s no reason why you’d need a car for your day to day life. Likewise, the public transportation in Lee’s Summit is pretty good. It’s not hard to get around by bus, for shopping, for work, even going on dates.
Not everyone in Lee’s Summit needs a car, but there are a few reasons to consider getting a car of your own. For instance, there’s plenty of work to be found in Lee’s Summit, but if you find a great job in one of the surrounding towns and suburbs like Grandview or Raymore, then you’re looking at a two hour bus ride or an Uber trip that costs you twice what you’re earning for a day’s work. Your car opens up your opportunities for advancing your career, and it means that you don’t have to live by the bus schedule. Not to mention road trips, and getting a little bit of privacy and space to yourself while you’re out and about.
