Riding the Bus to Work

Time magazine has posted a slideshow of the best cities for public transit and the worst:

[W]hich cities were best at getting their residents to their workplaces in a timely and cost-effective manner? By researching coverage, service frequency and percent of total employed residents who can use public transportation, the report aimed to rank cities based on the most convenient overall commute.

It's interesting to note that most of the best cities were out West and most of the worst cities were in the South and East. Do you think this is a striking coincidence? Maybe there's a relationship with your article about the land in the West a few weeks back.

I think it's also interesting to see the trends in the housing markets of these areas and seeing parallels between public transportation and how these areas are dealing with/managing their housing and economic recoveries. Thoughts?
