Buses drive on the shoulder on many highways and roads. So people stopped in traffic get to watch people surfing their phone or reading books go ahead of them. And buses here don't stop and open doors for railroads at all. Maybe school buses do.
But the routes are the problem. Spouse takes the bus in because it's quicker than driving, cheaper than parking, etc. I drive because it's a 12 minute drive or a 45 minute bus ride (IF I don't miss the connection, which I almost always do). But spouse is downtown, I'm not.
