Have you really not got a bike? If you can do it on foot, then a bike makes it even easier as it carries all the load for you...This is a very good point about public transport.
I struggled to get my weekly shop back home on foot this week, caught between the needs to avoid public transport, save delivery services for those who really need them and the preference of keeping trips to a minimum.
What with this, and the fact that the local supermarkets are limited, it would be useful to be able to use public transport to go to the big supermarket.
