Nope. Public transportation is not reliable enough time-wise and availability-wise. I do some things in order to cut down on driving such as running/biking to work or other places and "carpool" like by taking some friends who live in the same town as me with me when I go home from college. But I can't ever see myself "relying" on public transportation.

Gotta go with #2. Where I live there is no such thing as public transpo.

I had to go with option 2.

I need the freedom to get into a car at any time and go anywhere.

That is part of my job. It is also part of what keeps my sanity.

Consider yourself lucky MACH. Almost every time I've taken public transportation in the past, some ignorant slug behind me or next to me decides to call everyone they know on their cell phone or a big, fat smelly wildebeest squeezes his/her barrel ass next to me, nods off into a deep slumber with a snore that would wake the dead and I end up with that nasty, greasy head on my shoulder. I think I'd prefer using the shoe leather express if it comes down to it.

Yeah, I don't think I'd want to be sitting next to that on the city bus either.

HTG...

Come now, you can take care of that.

Here is what you do.

Grab a small bag. blow air into it and hold tight to the end... then pop it.

Watch the guy/gal jump. when they do that, have the person sitting on the other side slide over to you.

See? It is that easy!!

#2 here also. I have some pretty good professional reasons for choosing #2, but also, most of rural and semi-rural America has not evolved in a way that makes public transportation a useful option.

I understand the way you worded the question forces that into the "IF"... but that's a big "if" where I come from. When I lived in Oakland (Pittsburgh's Oakland), I could take a bus from Oakland to Oakmont to work. It was 75 minutes, but I could do it, it was cheap, and I didn't have to wait too long on either end. There is no way that a bus would even run from Mountain Top to the Wyoming Valley Mall, even though it's only 6 miles and 15 minutes away; there wouldn't be enough riders to support ONE loop, let alone a regular schedule!

The fact is that our social landscape has developed around the automobile, and public transportation is only one thing that needs to change if we are to look social organization for a solution. Shopping needs to become de-centralized again. it's a lot bigger than public transportation.

I thought you were talking about my wife there for a second (well the snoring part anyway) Hope she doesn't see this.
