This is why I bought a car. I was spending 3 hours a day on public transit. When I started driving I was down to 45 minutes total. That and I didn't have to put up with the crush of people on transit and I never have to worry about being able to sit down for a bit after a long work day. And to top it all off, I don't have to put up with the smell any more. Damn train smelled like a cattle car.
Now days I live 200 meters from my office front door. Can't beat that commute!
