Grandpa and me have some fond memories touring with public transit. I was 4 years old back then.

I agree with others that you'll see more young kids on public trans after rush hour. I used to take a bus through Bucktown/North Center/Ravenswood neighborhoods to get to work and would never see kids at rush hour. If I went into work late (9:30-10:00 AM) the bus had loads of kids, nannies, and SAHMs heading to a couple parks along the route.

These stroller are so huge now. They take up the entire sidewalk. They are like hummer sized. They have better shocks than economy cars.

Yes, indeed! They barely fit into our exam rooms! The twin strollers are even worse. You need a room just for the stroller!

One time my sister saw a 3 kid stroller, 3 across! It was like a tank! I thought she was kidding. She said, I almost got mowed down.

Do people have stroller garages?

One thing I have noticed is that I almost never encounter parents with very young children (like 2 years old or younger) riding public transportation. At least I don't see them often enough to have any impression on me.

Where are these carless parents I hear about? I have no doubt they exist. Don't they have places to go with their babies? Or do they actually have access to a car through friends and relatives?

I live in the Northeast and use buses and trains to get to work every day. Even during rush hour, I often see very young children (including infants and toddlers) on board. Including and especially the bus. Usually they appear to be immigrants (if that means anything).
