San Diego has one of the shortest commutes in the U.S. (at an average of 23 minutes), but an accident or highway repair can add stressful-frustrating hours. There must be some way to reduce the effects of this stress (e.g. higher blood pressure, higher weight, and lower fitness levels). Parking can also be a problem, making the entire commute an ordeal. Often, drivers don’t even know where to park because of the small print and confusing rules on parking signage.
Many avoid driving themselves altogether and instead commute by public transit. However, the public transit system could use several improvements. Feedback and communication with riders is an interesting problem facing the public transit system. Without feedback and communication it can be difficult to improve the commuter experience.
