    I, like many new Yorkers, use public transportation to work. It has its moments, but for $2.75 it works Ok. In the summertime however, many of the women who ride the trains and busses are dress immodestly. Is it better to spend more money and get to work, by other means?

    I hate to state the obvious, but if something is bothering you to the point where you would pay more money to not deal with it, then go do that.

    Peritzus should bother everyone.

    If I remember correctly Rav Moshe was meikel in regards to the possibility of touching women on a crowded subway. Maybe that would apply here. On the other hand, Rav Asher Arieli said that he is zocheh to have 800 guys in his shour because he used to take taxis to yeshiva instead of the bus.

    Bring a sefer with you to work and use it on the train looking into it the entire time until you get off the train

    Rav Moshe’s psak was regarding shomer negia (inadvertently making contact with a female [even properly dressed]) and NOT regarding being exposed to pritzus.

    And in the winter, they dress modestly?

    There aren’t two modes of dress, modest and immodest. There are many levels in between. I’m sure you’re aware that it’s worse in the summer.

    Depending on the weather, the only immodest option in the winter may be pants.

    On a serious note, obviously greater concerns during the summer but isn’t the question one of what other items you will have to forego if the expense of Uber et. al poses an economic burden. If you can afford it without any real stress, than make you life easier. Not just issues of pritzus but probably a more comfortable trip as well. Indulge.
