A reason for using public transport that I’ve never heard mentioned before is the added time for thinking.
By driving, you, and everyone else who is driving, are wasting valuable time that could have been used for thinking.
For a single person that might not be much or significant, but across the population it could mean the difference between tens or even hundreds of years of advancement difference by just taking the bus rather than driving.

All my pains has always increased my sense of purpose.

There is only as much space, only as much time,
Only as much desire, only as many words,
Only as many pages, only as much ink
To accept all of us at light-speed
Hurrying into the Promised Land
Of oblivion that is waiting for us sooner or later.
