"My car stays my primary mode of transportation"

The letter below appeared in the Sept. 25 edition of the SF Chronicle:

So Muni's goal "is not to make (cars) the most convenient choice" of transportation in the city ("Cars to take a backseat in S.F." Sept. 22).

Sorry, Muni, that ain't gonna work for me. I have a business to run, and I haven't got time to take three different lines (which don't seem to have any recognizable connection schedules) to get across town to see a client and then have to reverse the process when our meeting is over.

Why should I waste an hour and a half in each direction taking/waiting for crowded and often unpleasant Muni when I can get to my client in 15 minutes or less by car? Should I send Muni a bill for the time I would have to waste using its service? I don't think so.

My car stays my primary mode of transportation.
