What is the incentive of using public transport?

I'll be attending two events in the months to come. Of course I wish was able to visit SXSW, DefCon, GoogleIO and similar but... Money-wise I'm not just there yet. Wish my personal value and personal brand was strong enough to justify thousands of dollars in accommodation and flights and entry fees.

I also offered to share a room on Makespace mailing list and suggested an explanation to why on earth trains are so expensive!
- if you are poor: you travel by car and waste 4 hours focusing on road conditions (and by the time you are arrive you are too tired to do any work)
- if you are wealthy: you can sit, enjoy WiFi, power socket and do some work (that will make you even more wealthy)

vs renting a car:


It is still more expensive (note EUR and GBP signs) but I really value my flexibility and freedom. Maybe we will find another two to share the expense?

But then again: flexibility and freedom. Wish I was able to never look at the price tag again but always choose the most value.
