Right, and many people will rent cars instead of driving their own. I have to go give a talk at Madison next week. At the reimbursement rate, it's cheaper for the university for me to rent a car than it would be for me to drive a personal car (which I also don't have, but that's not the point). The bus is cheaper still but I have to carry some large equipment back...
And here the air that I breathe isn't dead.

The downtown areas of Riverside and San Bernardino feel like the commercial centers of small towns, not a metro of 4 million people.
There's a methodology involved (commuting patterns) but "MSA" doesn't capture the distinction. There's definitely a difference between LA/Riverside and San Franciscco/San Jose vs. DC/Baltimore.

I find most CSAs too extensive but when I provide stats I combine LA/Riverside and San Francisco/San Jose.
