If you aren't physically or "motivationally" capable of riding a real bicycle to the train, then a electric bike might just do the trick. Electric bikes can help make rail commute a lot more accessible for many.

Reason being you can't take gasoline and diesel things onto most (if not all) trains, but electric-powered personal transports like electric bike, scooters, Segways, and wheelchairs are usually not a problem.

my legs will hurt after a while riding a bike

i know electric go-peds you cant ride them in the rain, maybe electric bikes you can. if you could ride those whenever to a train then you could fit them into a small space instead of big park n rides for cars. in japan they do that with bikes and scooters and its free.

you could transform a car city to a bike and train city easily. change some car roads into a lightrail line and a wide bike path. have the bike path have a roof, some bikes you could have two people like with pegs. if you want four seats like with a car just have two bikes. ill let this thread die now lol
