Cars are the right answer: personal, on-demand access to almost any destination. Cars are just the wrong mass and randomness of behavior for highly repetitive travel.
As of 2012, congestion cost the average worker 38 hours per year (source: TTI’s 2012 URBAN MOBILITY REPORT); a work-week per year drained from the person and economy. This number is only expected to increase, as the economy improves. This drain equates to a 2% tax on working people that benefits no one. In large metropolitan areas such as Washington DC, Los Angeles, and San Francisco the cost is nearly double.
Commuting to work by bus takes about twice as long as by car. Delays are a tax on time.
