I'm in San Jose for the next two months for work and was wondering how I'd fare without a car. I'll be based in South San Jose (near the Santa Teresa light rail station) but I found a place to live in downtown San Jose. I've read that the public transit isn't so great but my main concern as a single woman is safety more than anything (which I've also read mixed reviews about). I've found a car rental deal that actually isn't too bad for a two month time frame but obviously the price is much higher than using public transit. What are your recommendations?
