I've got tons of parking lots near my office. If you were me, where would you park on a daily basis?

Poll coming.

Just out of curiousity, where exactly are you going if you are wanting to park? To a workplace?

Oh. Yeah. This is going to work every day in my office.

Well if you were to own a bicycle you could ride that the 25 blocks to work.

Heh, I was only curious.

Well, there are positives and negatives on each. I guess it depends on what you have to take with you to work. I would go for the free parking during the summer, and ride my bike to work, excluding inclement weather. Then during the winter, I guess I would go the 2 blocks away parking.

Covered garage is certainly the best bet - protect your car from the elements.

If you can afford to drive a Beemer (even a little crappy one :evil: ), you can probably swing $12 a day.

Free Parking at home! Get out and get some exercise you lazy bastard! LOL

Paying for parking everyday would SUCK! I'd go for the covered parking 4 blocks away. Protecting your car from the elements, and you get to enjoy a nice short stroll before and after work each day. I'd do it for the exercise too. During winter though, I would shovel out the dough for the nearest garage.

Honestly, 25 blocks away isn't that bad, how long does that walk take you? Think of the money you'll save and the pounds you'll shed.

Start a carpool and split the parking fee across the street.

Seriously. Four people, three bucks each.

Except for his ride is a 2 seater.

Personally, I'd hire a market researcher to determine my options. Surely there are some monthly or annual contracts which will reduce your daily cost significantly.
