Regardless of presence of WiFi I would take a train or a bus if it were available in my area. That way I could catch up on my sleep or reading.

For me there is no public transit options that can get me to work.

I live in a area that is served only by a commuter bus that runs a few times each day Mon-Fri to points downtown.

In my case I live in one suburb and I work in another suburb and there is no route in existence that would get me from here to there.

If all other convenience were to be funneled to a halt, then maybe a local bus service could become a rescue system with some foot huffing added to the circumstances. Ifs aren't often pleasant in nature.

All the commuter trains got wiped out this week due to the big storms. Don't see how this is possible though. MBTA (Boston transit) was so screwed up by the snow they forced out the general manager. She is incompetent - even my town dumped her when she ran our system.

I saw the Amtraks all idling empty on sidings along the highway this week. Sad. Why are trains stopped by snow? They have a specialized engine which clears tracks with a jet engine blower...guess it didn't work.

Trains are not affordable. They are extremely convenient for me but priced in the stratosphere. Makes no sense to ride one.

Bus or train???
I'd have to drive at least 30 miles to the nearest bus stop and 60 plus miles to a train station...don't think that's about to happen any time soon but then I can't imagine ever moving back anywhere close to some inner city environment again either.

The commuter trains, the Amtrak and the Acela all provide wifi here. As does Megabus.
