My commute isn’t too bad. I have to walk a mile or so to the metro, ride it for about 25 minutes, and then it’s a short walk from the station to the office. Driving would be exponentially more annoying (traffic) and costly (there’s a $5 bridge fair each day, plus gas and parking). Carpooling is an option but less dependable and besides, I like the solitude of public transit (it’s good reading time). Remarkably, riding a bike to work is not an option for me, as the Bay Bridge is only rideable on the new Oakland side. All this to say: My commute is fine, but it’s hardly fun.
The rise of personal EVs, then, offers a tantalizing proposition. The worst parts of my (and I wager your) commute are the walking sections. They’re not exactly punishing, but at the end of the working day, I just want to get back home, and if it’s hot or raining there’s little escape from the elements.
