Guess it depends on the area. Up here where I live there's a light rail system (ie underground system) and loads of buses with lots of travel pass options. Everything is very reliable unless it snows heavily. One of the companies that runs many of the London buses is based here, so that's probably why it works well. Plus it's highly subsidised and integrated by a regional transport authority.
Not sure that the above is entirely accurate, but I see your point. Our public transport is crap though; at least it is where I live. Totally unreliable, costs a bomb (and keeps going up), doesn't run 24 hours. Not a viable alternative to using a car at all.

You don't live in a Gas producing nation. That I know of anyway. Plus, you probably get taxed way higher. You have it easy though in that a lot of people over here have to commute a distance the size of half of England or bigger to get to work everyday. I imagine that most people in Europe have much better access to public transportation and closer commuting to where it is you work.

Let's not turn this into a gas discussion though, it's much too depressing. Sad
Good luck Tom. Where I live, all we will get is probably moderate showers and maybe about 10 MPH winds.
good luck Tom
I always keep you guys in mind when I go to the pump Mal, makes the pill a lot easier to swallow.
Do you think God is trying to tell you something? Wink

Oh, and good luck with the latest hurricane. Hope there's no more before the season is up.
Good Luck Tom.

My first hope is that the people down that way are ok. My second is that the hurricane looses strength by the time it gets there like the news says. My third is that gas prices come back down by mid-next week. I'm so sick of price gouging. Tongue
