This question already has an answer here:

I'm currently riding a mountain bike from Wal-Mart, takes me about an hour. When I get my tax return, I plan buying a more appropriate bike for the commute. I'd like to stay around $300-400, and this would be the second bike I would buy, so I'd appreciate any suggestions and advice.

Used. You can find some decent used bikes in that range. A hybrid might be a good choice. You find people that paid $800 - $900 for bike they never used and it will sell used as low as $300. Be patient and low ball. Learn how to inspect a bike. If you are on a budget you need to learn how to maintain a bike.

    -1 Why would you answer this? This is clearly an inappropriate question if not a duplicate. – BSO rider Jan 3 '16 at 1:44

    @BSOrider Then find a duplicate and mark it. This is a guy that rides 13 miles to work on a wally mart and is excited about spending a tax refund on an upgrade. Can you spell compassion? – paparazzo Jan 3 '16 at 7:20
