I live in Phoenix and sometimes I take the streetcar downtown to go to a baseball game. I am amazed at how unsafe it is homeless people are doing drugs and shooting up heroine. The train is filty and covered in trash and dirt and it takes forever to get anywhere. Why does public transit suck so much. I prefer to drive my truck and pay for parking vs getting shanked by a methhead. The train security people even wear latex gloves or combat gloves when checking tickets because of how bad it is. The other day some homeless person was kicked off for screaming about Jesus and how everyone on the train is evil. Is public transit like this is most cities. I drive a giant lifted truck so I really don't give a dam about polluting. Public transit seems like a good idea in theory to ride to a baseball game but because it's so bad I drive. In other cities is it just homeless people and drug addicts that ride the bus or is it normal people.
