Public transportation usage among U.S. workers


The roads in Las Vegas are starting to look like the roads in LA – way too crowded, and not moving very fast.

Plus, have you looked at the price of gasoline recently?

Public Transportation is starting to look pretty good. Who’s riding the bus? Is it a good idea for you?

  1. It would be great if I could use the bus getting to and from work. I’d have time to get other work done while letting someone else drive. I looked into it one time to see how feasible it would be and it would take 2.5 hours to get to work and 2 hours to get home. It normally takes 20-25 by car, so I’d lose over 3.5 hours per day just by switching. Afraid I’m sticking with the car for the foreseeable future.

    I’d love to try biking, too, but there are long stretches between work and home where the streets are less than accommodating to bicyclists. That plus the great chance for flats given the amount of construction debris in the roads and bicycling is right out, too.

    Public transportation needs to be flattened and redone in Las Vegas and that’s never going to happen. To expensive, too much ROW to be purchased, and only marginal impetus for change from the public.
