I live in Hillcrest, work in Mission Valley and often have to travel from work to Downtown. I’d love to ride public transit and stop using gasoline. I can’t do that because our transit system sucks ass. It takes me about six minutes to drive to work, but it would take nearly an hour to get there by bus and trolley. It’s completely infeasible. So, because I’m among the 97 percent who drive, the U-T assumes I choose to drive and vote by turning on the ignition.I am in the same boat of wanting to take public transit, but looking at least quintupling my commute time if I did. So, I should not be counted in the 97% the article cites, either.
