California is without a doubt, car-country. It’s feasible to say that public transport doesn’t actually exist. Yes, there are some rather disgusting buses running around the city, a one-line and very slow train between SF and SJ
Sio, without a car how do I survive here? Fortunately there is a cool invention called Zipcars.
You can rent a Zipcar by the hour or by the day which is perfect for whizzing around the city or for short weekend breaks. As an added bonus they come with their own parking spot too, so no hassles dropping it off.
