This. My commute to work takes approximately 10-15 minutes, depending on traffic. I live within walking distance to a bus stop and a bus stops immediately in front of my building. However, the fastest route between those two places by our bus system takes me to the other side of the city for a transfer, involves waiting 25 minutes, twice, for transfers, and takes almost two hours each way! And it costs almost as much as my gasoline. I would love to be able to let someone else drive, but I'm not going to waste three hours every day just sitting on a bus when I could be spending that time with my wife and kids.
