    Re: How many use Mass Transit?

    Yes and no. When I'm in a city with mass transit, I use it. I have metro/bus passes from most major cities and keep them in a separate wallet for when I travel. Because I'm disabled, I can usually get an even better deal. The one exception is DC. A friend has a car rental service and gets HOT if I don't use his service when there. He gives me a great deal though, better then cabbies and is only a phone call away.

    Where I live, the tribes have various buses for the different departments who will pick up clients and transport you pretty much anywhere if you call and notify them 24 hours ahead. I still have to drive 10 miles to get to a pick up point. One of the downsides of living in the boonies at the end of the dirt road!

    No, public transportation here sucks. I drive to work but live within a 6 block radius of shopping, food, park, bars, mom, and $1 theater. No need for public transportation there when I can walk.

    PS Mods could you add the poll for some reason it didn't work
    The only mass transit we have here is a crappy bus line... so no. Plus I live out in the country.
    Even when I lived in the OC/LA area, I didn't since it was not as practical...
    when I lived in Napa/Russian River and we went ot San Fran a ton... I would park and then use BART/Buses/or Cable Cars for the day... or just walk and get great exercise...
    Here though, it is all so damn close that I can walk or bike to the beach, stores, firehouse, etc.

    I take the metro rail about 4 times a week. Mostly to avoid traffic and such.

    I have never used mass transit. The biggest bus I was ever on was was when the police haul hundreds of us away in NYC back in 70.

    I take Metro every single day. I live within walking distance of the station, so to get to and from work, I do not have to do any driving. It's fantastic.

    Okay, I feel a little sick. There was a terrible train wreck on the Red Line on Monday (June 22) at 5pm. 9 people were killed and over 70 people were injured. 9 Killed, 76 Injured in Deadliest Disaster in Metro History|ABC 7 News Scorpion saying he comes into DC from the rail system means he uses the Red Line. He has not been back here since the morning of the train wreck. Scorpion, let us know you're okay. I'll feel better.

    Okay, I feel better. They listed the names all nine people who were killed in the accident in today's Washington Post, and none of them live in Baltimore.

    I'll Use the subway when it's convienent, or it looks like traffic will suck.


    Usually though I use a car service when in the city.

    Re: How many use Mass Transit?

    I think a lot of it has to do with one's perception.

    For instance...I have a car, but prefer to use mass transit because I feel that it "frees" me up. I don't have to look for parking and pay the exhorbitant prices downtown LA, I can get off the subway...go to happy hour in Hollywood, not have to worry about DUI...and I can read or sleep rather than fighting all the other crazy drivers on the road.

    Friends of mine who have used mass transit their entire lives...when they get a car....feel free and liberated.

    I just don't understand where they are coming from.

    Mass transit does not run on the Good Reverend's schedule and therefore is not the optimal choice.
