Asked in Downtown Mountain View. Interviews and photos by Nick Gonzales
"I do not carpool, neither do I drive a car. I use public transportation because its very convenient, it's cheap, and I stay in shape. If I want to go to San Francisco, I take Caltrain, and I'm there."
Bermet Baltagulova, Mountain View
"I do not carpool because where I work, along 280, pretty much no one else in the area that I know works there. And also public transit doesn't really go down there in any reasonable time."
Brian Sampson, Mountain View
"Presently, I don't take public transportation. I have before in the past taken public transportation, but I prefer to have my own car so that I can be able to go whenever I want."
Mary Ann Salyards, Santa Clara
"I take the Caltrain everyday. My office is literally across the street from the Caltrain station and I live about a two-minute walk on the other end in San Francisco. So my total commute is about 45 minutes door-to-door. It's very convenient."
Robert Chang, San Francisco
"I don't take public transportation mainly because my work does not have any bus stops around it and I would have to go over the San Mateo Bridge."
Jackie Deleon, Hayward
