Look, I didn't quote you, I simply gave the OP my suggestions, why the heck do you always have to start this?

And we all know you hate the south. I really don't care if you think their public transportation sucks.

Just LEAVE ME ALONE...

I said that because they're looking for good public transportation, which your suggestions don't have.

Atlanta does.

You don't see me correcting you about the weather of the places you listed... so don't correct me, don't talk to me.

Good bye.

^^Atlanta public transportation can't compare to cities that are better options.

And NYC's warm climate can't compare to Atlanta's.

So what exactly is the point of me and you having a debate over it.

I know you're going to say the Northeastern cities, and you know I'm going to list other cities that you don't like.

So we should just agree to disagree about each others posts from now on.

Atlanta's public transit is pretty good I hear, though I've never taken it. It might be an option.

If she doesn't have a car, I'd recommend Dallas over Houston. Hopefully in a few years public transit in Houston will be better with the additional rail lines planned, but as of now, it leaves a lot to be desired. When my car broke down and I had to take the bus I had a heckuva time getting around, and I lived pretty close to downtown. Lots and lots of waiting, and loooong rides. I wouldn't wish being carless in Houston on anyone. It's only somewhat comfortably doable in a select few places, namely anywhere along the SINGLE rail line.

Dallas looks like it only has like 10 stations it goes to. Not exactly a city meant for someone without a car.
