Get a monthly pass for the bus or transit system in your community. This will save you a lot of money. Using a taxi all the time will eat up your money. Uber will be cheaper, but still cost a lot of money.
WISE ADVICE: NEVER take Uber or Taxi alone at night. If you have to, sit in the back seat behind the driver. This will keep you safer if the driver tries to do something inappropriate. In that seat they cannot reach you as easily.
