Though that presumably is because you didn't select a place to live based on the transit network.
I can get to work in 15 mins on the bus vs 12 minutes in the car. I can get to the center of town at almost any time of day, i can get into our nearest big city, i can get to two other towns, i can get to the airport all without needing to walk more than about 5 minutes. I also don't pay anything for my bus pass.
Even then I only ever use it if it's raining or snowy and I don't want to take the bike or walk.
