The majority of people in North America drive to work, alone, in their vehicles. This is an incredibly wasteful way to commute when people could carpool. Or they could arrange to telecommute or consider other alternative transportation methods such as taking a bus, train or subway. A lot of people who could save gas by walking or biking to work still opt for the comfortable confines of their cars.
Do you take alternative transportation much?

For me, being a suburbanite, taking a train can actually make my commute even longer. That said, some days I do it anyway. Good for the environment, and might save me a few bucks each day depending on the day.
Now, if someone is in a situation where it takes the same amount of time to get from Point A to Point B if they drive or take public transportation, it seems like the latter would be a better choice all around.
I think a lot of things can get done during that train ride as well.
