Rural versus Urban

The rural view

The rural view - family by car

"Living in the country,
we need our cars - public transport is virtually nonexistent! In the winter a decent 4x4 is the only way to get around, but the cost of fuel is now a real challenge..."

Chris and Phillipa Sale
Oxfordshire

The urban view

"The main reason that we use our car in the city is that children from five and over are charged on buses in Edinburgh, so for us all to travel by bus costs £10.40 for a day ticket, or £8 return. Parking is cheaper unless staying somewhere for a few hours or so, and is free on Sundays."

Lorraine and Kevin White
Edinburgh
