one problem is, public transport is not designed with human beings in mind. You put two seats in a block and 99% of the time there will be ONE person sitting on those two seats. Newcomers will stand in the doorway uncomfortably rather than sit next to a stranger, if they get on at all.

The capacity of public transport is vastly overestimated. people avoid it, and choose personal space, instead

I tend to stand unless bus is nearly-empty. I'll choose to sit in a place with no people within 3 meter radius. I don't mind if someone sits next to me, but I won't be the one doing that.

tell that to my 8 years in high scool when i shared my bus for 60 minutes a day with about 150% people the bus was originally designed for. the bus frame often touched the ground, and the driver had to forcibly push people off, so we could move.

one time a guy puked, and it hit six people around him, who couldn't move away.

that's when i switched to bicycle.

That's rather pathetic. Over here the empty seats get preffered aswell obviously, but when they're full they just sit next to eachother. Are people REALLY that ******* socially awkward they can't even SIT next to eachother over there??

over here and over there is very confusing. you likely live in a place where public transportation is highly encouraged. i live in alaska and i avoid it like the plague out of fear of getting the plague and most people do the same

They do fill up eventually, so it's not like there's wasted space. Even with the uncomfortableness it is still a more efficient use of space than a single rider car.

space and energy - imagine how the american oil consumption would reduce (from 18.83 million barrels a day [in 2011])

Strange. In my country we are so packed in the buses that I wonder how the hell is the suspension holding.

well now, it's my personal experience that it's undervalued. At first the seats fill erratically but they all fill eventually and then every square inch becomes occupied with flesh or luggage until we read the Metro and the process repeats.

So it's official, everyone get's their own bus.

I can understand public transportation in our major cities, but when it comes to places like a country town or small city, they don't really fit in because there's so much space for cars and people that they don't really serve a purpose except the school bus. However, when it comes to major cities like NYC, LA, Chicago, Houston, etc., I think there should be more an emphasis on public transportation, it cleans up streets so more service vehicles can do their jobs better (ranging from construction vehicles, to garbage trucks, taxi's, and police/ambulances), it saves people BOATLOADS of money from having to buy a car and the hassle of driving, saves insurance companies boatloads from claims from stupid drivers, saves boatloads of money for people when it comes to insurance! hell if I lived in a major city such as Madison or Milwaukee, WI, I would take advantage of public transportation (if available) because it would save me from headaches. Think about all the traffic jams and why they're caused, mostly because of some stupid idiot driver getting into an accident, when more people invest into public transportation, the more you can clean up streets and keep the flow of traffic going!

Philadelphian here. I take four buses a day, and nearly always, there are fat people who take up two seats rather than one.

Public transport doesent always go where you need to go, plus you dont have to sit next to a hobo if you have your own car.
