Mass transit is a crock of sh*t! It is a sink hole economically. Not one mass transit system in the entire US is profitable, not even NY's, that I've ever seen.
And it goes hand in hand with so called "smart" growth urban development that crams people into cities to prevent urban sprawl. Thus creating housing shortages, more expensive property, higher rents, more population and traffic density, and ultimately more crime and tension in a city.
No thanks, I'll take my car and the urban sprawl! As someone above pointed out, I don't want to travel based on the city's schedule, nor do I want to travel with a bunch of strangers. I'd rather drive in my own car!
