Is it ok to have casual friends?
So, I try to be a good friend, but alot of times I get NOTHING in return (and don't say that being a good friend means you should never expect a favour returned)
Most of the friends I have, are not really (TRUE) friends that you can depend on for anything day or night.....but if you enjoy each others company; is it still healthy and (wise) to have friendships like that......but no doing things for each other (just maybe go on a hike with them.....dinner? bowling? movie? )
Just want some opinions, as I figure most of my friends are like that.
One thing I have cut, is giving rides to friends....

There are close friends and there are casual acquaintances and everything in between. Sounds like you have a nice big circle of friendly acquaintances which is healthy and wise. Friendship doesn't mean people HAVE to do things for each other. If you felt you were being used as a taxi, cutting rides for random people sounds sensible.

Is it "ok"? Ok with whom? The only question here is whether it's ok WITH YOU.
