I use public transportation, and I believe such meetings should be accessble for all os us to use it, for several reasons.

#1: there is a big problem of superstitious prejudice in the South, which identifies bus use with the "servant class" and an equally big problem in the Catholic Church, which has lost its blue-collar roots as one of the effects of VII and I believe that good Catholics have to maintain a life that erases the artificial barriers between social "castes", such as the stigmatization of all who use public transport

#2: sooner or later EVERYONE loses their car. We will see gas rationing even if only by expense as the economy deteriorates and also as people get older they have  more reasons to stop driving and their participation in Catholic fellowship should not suffer as a result

#3: once you get used to using busses, you discover that you have a better prayer life. a better connection between your daily life and the lives of those around you.

#4: as the gov't tightens control of citizen movement, it actually makes it harder for people to keep licenses or own cars while mostly ignoring the movements of those who use public transport locally, which paradoxically means that you preserve more personal freedom by using the bus than by driving.
