Via bus service is acutely pretty good and wins awards, BUT that is all we have. No rail anywhere except long hauls on AMTRAK.

It's decent. I can almost guarantee most of the posters in here have never used public transit let alone counted on it on a daily basis.

I have.

I can almost guarantee that most people have checked their commute on VIA's website and determined that 112 minutes each way ( when it takes 25 minutes to drive) is too absurd to deal with on a daily basis. I know when I worked and gas was $4 a gallon, I was sure looking. Time with family is worth more to me and I'm sure most people.

I tried it once to go to downtown as an experiment to avoid having to park a car there. Once was enough for me to feel blessed I have a vehicle to drive here because of the time it took.

I understand you want to defend anything San Antonio related but public transportation here shouldn't be one of them in my opinion.

Thanks for your honesty. And thank you to everyone else for your candid response(s). I agree that defending anything Texas (in this case anything San Antonio) is very popular among Texans... More so than any other state that I've been to. DFW is probably the worst. It's like dude, it's OK not to have the best of everything.... No need to be delusional/dishonest.

When other states have a waffle iron made in their shape, maybe the tables will turn. And no, the square states don't count.
