Used Cars vs. Public Transit in Council Bluffs, IA

It’s no wonder many drivers are looking for a used car dealer near Council Bluffs. Public transportation here in town just isn’t capable of getting you everywhere you need to go with minimal fuss. Even more frustrating is that there are only two options:

  • Metro buses
  • Amtrak

Take a closer look at the Council Bluffs public transportation situation, and you’ll see why your own set of wheels is the way to go.

Metro Buses

Metro buses provide good service once you get into the center of Omaha, but they aren’t particularly reliable if you simply want to get around Council Bluffs. Only yellow and blue routes serve the area, so you’re very limited in the ways you can navigate our city.

Even if you do want to head into Omaha, you might have a long walk and several connections to make before arriving at your destination. Even worse, buses don’t run 24/7, so you could be left stranded if you stay out too late.

The closest Amtrak station is in Omaha, so you still have to find your own means of getting to Omaha if you feel like taking a train. Plus, it’s really only a viable transportation option if you have longer distances to travel – Amtrak isn’t going to take you from Carter Lake to Crescent or from Underwood to White Cloud.

Additionally, Amtrak services are infrequent and tend to be on the expensive side – trains like these certainly can’t be considered an alternative to owning one’s own car.

Why Look for Used Car Financing Instead?

Having a car means being able to enjoy real freedom. You can go anywhere you want whenever you want to go! There’s no waiting at stops or hurrying to make connections. Everything is on your own time.

If you don’t have a car because financing has proven problematic in the past, just look to CarHop. Thanks to Buy Here Pay Here financing, we’re able to work with drivers who have bad credit or no credit history.
