    re: How many use Mass Transit?

    I don't and it's not really an option. In fact, every time I've looked into using some form of public transportation for doing anything, it's turned out to be more expensive, less convenient and more distasteful than just getting in my car and driving somewhere. I suppose it's fine if you live in a big city, but I detest big cities and would never live in one.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    I my self use the Rail system to get to and from work I live in Baltimore and ride the train to DC everyday. In general I try to us the Mass system if I can.

    PS Mods could you add the poll for some reason it didn't work
    When I lived in CA I used buses and BART all the time. It was faster, cheap[er and easier than private transportation.

    Now, in SD, I can't wait for a bus to show up and take it's time wandering across town. I thing mass transit only works for big populations.

    I would rather hang out with David Carradine than sit on a putrid hot train next to a sweaty dude who smells like onion while the drunk a few feet away is getting ready to hurl. There's no cost too high for avoiding that nightmare.

For example If you wanted to go to the mall and you lived on the north side of town and the mall is on the south side of town you would be looking spending a 1/6 to 1/4 of your day maybe more waiting for the bus,transferring to another bus and riding the bus. Most people in my city drive so it would be idiotic to have a subway or passenger train service.
    Carpooling is encouraged here and we have a Metro bus and light rail system, but more could be done to accommodate those of us who don't live within the city limits. We do have a decent system of dedicated High Occupancy Vehicle lanes on the freeways that connect to outlying Park and Ride stations, and that does help.

    I don't use the bus or rail systems because I like the freedom of being able to come and go according to my schedule rather than the bus schedule.

    What, when I have a perfectly good gas guzzler? Dealing with those people on the road is bad enough, at least I can't smell them.

    Take the subway on the daily. Much quicker/cheaper than any other method of getting to work.

    People sleep peaceably in their beds at night only because rough men stand ready to do violence on their behalf.

    I drive to work. I have cheap parking and until the RCMP/City cops start enforcing the HOV/Bus lanes on the interprovincial bridges, it's zippity quick too.
