I think you're saying the problem is as more people take taxis the lines for them get longer at the station. But I don't need to wait in that line if I'm going door to door.

As for congestion, if all the cars are AI maybe they can pack a few X more cars on the streets? Not saying I like that idea

I'm saying that the immediate area around the station gets incredibly congested, so it's difficult to get close to the station in anything that approaches a timely fashion. It prevents "door to door" since it takes longer to get to the station "door" with the congestion than it would have taken to simply walk.


But I have no desire to go to the station door. I want to go to my destination. From my door to my office door. Or from my door to my friends door. I have zero interest in going to some station to use an outdated mode of transport when I can have a modern and cheap AI car take me directly to where I'm trying to go


My bad; I completely misread your initial post as wanting to replace a 20 minute walk from your house to the station with a taxi.
