In the states we seem to drive or mainly fly everywhere, because of the long distances involved. And being in a city of over 3 million people, the only trains I really know about are the 'Metra'commuter trains that get you from point A to point B. They go so fast it's scary.
I love to fly but the security checks make it such a hassle now, tho the need is understood.
I usually prefer just to drive as long as it's not too far.
~Pete tried to use the Tardis but he's not the real 'Doctor' so it won't work for him
EDIT on my typo--Chicago has 3 million people - no wonder we need our own train system
