We don’t have public transportation in my area. If we did I would use it.

Low percentage of K-12; do they not consider the school bus public transportation?

I live in Charlotte which is still developing its public transit. When the new rail line opens up I'll likely be a daily rider since there's a stop in front of my job

It's not available where I live.

When I worked in Manhattan and lived on along Island I commuted by train and subway every day. Now I live in a small college town surrounded by cornfields. Because of the university there are buses, but nothing else. I now drive my own vehicle each day.

As of now, about 4 times a week. starting next school year (I’m moving home full time again) I’ll be a daily commuter Monday-Saturday from NJ to NYC.

I grew up riding public transportation. I got tired of the strung out crackheads in the morning and meaningless violence so now I usually bike to wherever a bus can take me. I always take the train to Sf

I’ve heard too many horror stories from friends.

One was vomited on by a man sitting behind her.

Another realized after a few minutes he was sitting in a seat soaked in pee.

You have to own a vehicle out in country.

No, public transportation doesn’t run where I live. I would need to drive to a park and ride to use it, so I just drive to where I’m going.

Almost no need for a car in Seattle. I get to and from work in the same amount of time. Sometimes less because of dedicated bus lanes in the highway. And I can be on my phone and not have to deal with the traffic!

No. The buses come every 30mins to an hour and take forever to get anywhere. Our train is only 7 miles long and nothing goes to the airport.

I would but the only bus that comes out is at 5am and comes back at 6pm. Uh, if I had a Drs appointment, WTF am I supposed to do for the rest of the day? Idiot politicians.

I don't think I've ever used public transportation outside of school, if the bus and a train ride count.

No. It’s not convenient for me. However, my grandpa regularly rides the city bus “for something to do.”

When I first moved to Seattle I sold my car and used public transit for 5 years. Now I have a house in the suburbs and have to drive to get anywhere.

No. I enjoy the freedom to go where I please, when I please. No doubt public transit plays an important role in cities like NYC, but here, there's no need.

Fairly regularly, although walking is my main mode of transportation. (I don't drive.) I use the buses in Fort Collins if my destination is over 3 miles, or if the weather is particularly bad in a way that makes walking dangerous or extremely unpleasant (thunderstorms, very icy sidewalks, extreme cold), etc. Otherwise I walk. Or if I want to take a long walk in a place somewhere pretty far from where I live, like one of the natural areas on the edge of town. (I *really* should get a bicycle.)

I took 4 buses (total) this past Tuesday to deliver our eclipse glasses to a volunteer collection site for Astronomers Without Borders, and I'll take the same 4 buses next Tuesday for a trip to the dentist.

I've used public transportation in most of the places where I've lived before, and also when I travel to other cities.

Only time I’ve ever used it is visiting New York City on the Subway. Not a fan

I knew a promiscuous girl who everyone called the public transportation because everyone rode her all the time.

But wouldn’t that mean that just wandered aimlessly around while no one rode her though?

Hahaha, no. Public transportation is for peasants. I drive a Buick and I have an indoor heated garage.

I enjoy being a "peasant" (although I'd rather walk, for my health and some other reasons, when feasible).

When I took the bus last week there was a Navy veteran in a wheelchair who had the people in the front of the bus including the driver (there were only a few of us) laughing and in good spirits the whole time he was on the bus. Personally I'd rather have an experience like that, than drive somewhere enclosed in my own bubble the whole way.

Suit yourself. I don't like very many other people, so I prefer my bubble.

Buick is the car of the gods. I drove my grandmas old Buick years ago, and I still long for the luxury, comfort, and elite performance that I experienced when driving that exquisite automobile.

Buicks don't do it for me. My mom has an Enclave and it's kinda boring. It just looks like a refined GMC. I prefer Lincoln or Tesla.

I did when I lived in NYC. Now, hardly any public transit in my area.

Yes. The buses that go around Boston. I swear, some of the drivers are fucking insane.
