A different home location and/or work location.
We have a fairly good public transportation system here in the Bay Area. But it depends on where you live and where you want to go.
For example, to SFO I just need a mile to the BART station, and then I am off and don't even need to change trains.
To work, I need that one mile (walk, bike, or car), two trains, and two buses. The typical maximum wait time alone is 15+15+20+30 = 1h and 20min. That's without actual travel time (about 1h), and one-way. At night, a trip can take 3h - for what is 11 miles and less than 20min by car. If it doesn't rain and if it's not too late, it is faster to walk one of the bus segments, but it can still take 2h 45min.
And for those suggesting a bicycle, the trip involves several elevation changes of 500' to over 1000,' and is about 15 miles because I can't take the highway on the bicycle...
An EV would be perfectly fine, though.
