I am more comfortable asking for rides when my car is used for the trip, but since it’s my car and I’m paying for the gas, should I pay or tip the driver?
That’s really up to you. If the driver is a close friend or family member, there may not be such an expectation. The best course of action is to address this and any other topics in advance, so that you and the driver have a clear and mutual understanding before scheduling your first trip.
I had no idea how expensive it was to own my car, but nothing beats driving whenever and wherever I want. How can I get around, when using alternative transportation takes more time than driving my own car?
Some might say that time is money, so this is a legitimate consideration when making the switch to other forms of transportation. Trip chaining is a process by which you schedule a volunteer driver to shuttle you around town, but you reach several different destinations before returning home. This may help to reduce the number of trips you have to schedule each week.
