Give up your car, get free public transportation

The problem with that is not everyone lives in cities like San Fran, LA, Ney York, Chicago, and so on. Most live in towns that have less than 4000 population, so there is not a grocery store, hardware store, or the likes in some of those. In fact my town has no grocery store, hardware store, apliance store, so how would public transportation work there? To get food (other than what the gas stations carry) I have to drive 30 miles round trip. If you live in a city and can do so great do it, but millions of people do not. Also not everyone has a job that close to home, I drive 16 miles round trip, my wife 30 miles round trip. If we moved to where she works then I would have to drive 46 miles round trip, and pay 40 times more for the same size house (small by the way).
