Not all that long, I suspect.

Of course, people will pick and mix to an extent. Walk or cycle, if they can, in order to save up money for a holiday. And car-share for longer commutes - my father used to get a lift and pay the driver something towards running costs.

I have seen the homeless with touring bikes, a second hand one is not much more than 2 days begging or given freely.

That's nowadays, when people sell stuff cheap or give it away or throw it out, knowing they can earn, or borrow, the money to buy newer and shinier stuff. I'm not sure how long this situation is going to last.
