When I was younger and I drove but my boyfriend did not, he thought it was great to have me as a chauffeur and would even lie about having forgotten something somewhere so that we would go drive around in my car. I finally put an end to it the night I left an awesome dance to drive him and his friend to "pick up friends asthma medication" and they giggled all the way there and kept suggesting more stopoffs. I kicked them out and went back to the dance.
Moral of the story, even if he is interested in you and generous in front of others, do not become his chauffeur, you'll never know if he wants to be with you or just doesn't want to take the bus or walk.

Does it?  The OP has never given him the money nor driven him.     We don't know whether others have or not.   Although I agree it must work occasionally otherwise it's bizarre that he keeps trying!
