Dr. Gridlock: Mass Transit Vs. Driving

Mass transit or driving -- which one is a better mode for commuting?

"I thought it would be appropriate to weigh the benefits of commuting by mass transit vs. driving. Here is point-counterpoint from two readers...'I miss driving. I miss it because it was faster. I miss it because when I opened the door to my car, 700 people didn't try to squeeze in with me'...'When I commute by Metro, I don't have to worry about aggressive drivers, SUVs, or stop-and-go traffic. When I commute by car, I feel stressed.'"
