Lower-capacity transportation forces people to move further out, so the same cost per-passenger-mile works out to a higher cost per-passenger. Thus the unsubsidized cost of subways per passenger is about one third that of roads including private costs like cars and fuel, even though the per-passenger-mile cost is much higher.

When I've worked downtown, the Park & Rides have been quite popular... because they are also express services.
