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.

My reply was mainly to Tadman about the low passenger counts. I don't think the driving time is relevant — the point is that not many people live in Oxnard to commute to downtown LA.
