There's another reason, too. People who are primarily reliant on public transit tend to be lower income. They don't have the same access to power, they don't donate to political campaigns, and they also pay less in taxes. Transit policies are set by government officials, who are more responsive to people who make more money, have more to lose in taxes if service is increased, and are more likely to donate to political campaigns.
