    Depends on lot of factors. I lived there without car for one year, wasnt too bad and it came with some cons. Some considerations:
    1) how often you go to work(if you go 5 days, buying car might come out cheaper)
    2) how far is the office ? Flexible timings ? Prime time could get really expensive
    3) do you like to go camping ? To the beaches etc. if yes, you SHOULD get a car
    4) how far are some stores from your place. I had safeway, groceries and many other stores 10mins walk, but it was still a pain in the ass as no one really stops for you to cross the street unless its red traffic signal
    5) going to SF not so bad as you can take caltrain and avoid annoying issues like parking, break-ins etc. sometimes uber pool express to SF would be just $28 which I consider a sweet deal and 0 effort

    Scoop and Uber commuter benefits. You will be perfectly fine. Plus save $1000 by not having a car

    It’s tough. You need a car. VTA and buses are inadequate. You’ll feel the pinch within 3 months.

    If you are staying in Sunnyvale much of the time you can walk or bike. For far distance outside of the region Uber is sufficient.

    I just signed a lease for a Sunnyvale apt and my thought while driving around today was “damn I’m glad I have a car.”

    Doesn’t Google offer loaner Toyota Priuses or clean air vehicles? Grab a Google bike and bike around.
