: They dont, they dont like being controlled by a timetable and having to share seats with strangers.

Is that eternal, or a result of a specific cultural setting/ mileu? Actually, I reckon under socialism what you'd have is trains between towns, and a free to use car pool available at each end, for jounries within teh city (where cars are more necessary)....

And the fact that they will stop at the door, and be avaliable when you need them, which car pools could quite as easilly manage.
