True--but what's the minimum time on US 101? (And is there a lull anymore between the AM and PM rush hours?) I've seen commuters dozing on Metrolink who couldn't be doing that on the freeway. And I think there are plenty of outlets for laptops on Metrolink. I remember seeing, back when the Ventura County service was near to opening, a full-page ad from a developer of townhouses in Moorpark touting that by the time the buildings were finished there would be train service to LA within walking distance of the property.
