a motorcycle is a good option especially if you live in the suburbs because you can use the HOV lanes. just sort out parking at your destination and hydration during the trips

Exactly. Just get in the car so you can get clipped by someone trying to go across three lanes of freeway without using a turn signal or (most importantly) taking a look at where they're going. At least on a bike in the HOV lanes you don't have to deal with this so much.

Whatever you ride in, please do not be stupid and get hit by a METRORail train. I don't understand it...
