What are you gonna do when you're at your destination? Take PUBLIC TRANSPORT? LOL. Yeah, right. Also, buses may be good when you're alone, but the inter-city trips are often done with more than 1 person, sometimes an entire family. This is where a car is more economical in many ways.

Um, this would be the same situation as if you flew. You could have friends or family pick you up, take a taxi, rent a car, etc... Just depends on one's situation.

It CAN be done without driving dangerous, and NO, driving fast is not automatically "dangerous".

I used to commute from the from the west side of Longview, TX to the west side of SA. I-20 West to I-35E ( in south Dallas ) I-35E/I-35 south to Georgetown, TX-130 Toll to Seguin, and would average 5.5 hours reaching the SA City limits sign on I-10 east of town. Then another 45 min-hour to final destination from there pending traffic and if I stopped any.

Outside of the south areas of Dallas, and Waco the posted speed limit is 75. TX-130 has speed limits of 80 & 85.

I always typically drive 5+ max on the tolls, and it`s always the DPS/County Mounties passing me doing 100+ in the left lane.

Never at any time exceeding 5+ of any posted limit, one can make great time to Dallas if you do the following:

1. Properly maintain your car beforehand.
2. Dont drive at peak times.
3. Plan ahead ( fill up before you leave ) and account for construction zones.
4. Minimize/eliminate stops.
5. Drive a consistent speed with the flow of traffic vs speeding or being a snail.
