I think people experience more sticker shock with season passes than they would otherwise.

Even the tube costs like £1500/yr if you're using it round trip every workday in Zone 1-2. Of course a commuter train from 50-100 miles away is going to cost 4x that. It would cost at least as much to travel by car, just factoring in mileage and fuel.

If you want a free commute, then walk to work. You better be prepared for a shitty job or very high housing prices.
There is a cult of ignorance in the United States, and there always has been. The strain of anti-intellectualism has been a constant thread winding its way through our political and cultural life, nurtured by the false notion that democracy means that "my ignorance is just as good as your knowledge." - Isaac Asimov
