and (b) both be true simultaneously?
(c) What is actually being asserted by someone who says that it's inefficient

Expert's answer
Many Americans regularly drive their own cars to work rather than use public transportation or form a car pool.
(a) Each person in a single-passenger vehicle during the rush hour can behave efficiently, as there is no better way to get to some place faster.
(b) The people riding the bus are also behaving efficiently, if it is better, cheaper or faster to use such kind of transportation to get to some place. Both (a) and (b) can be true simultaneously, because if all people use only buses or only own cars, this will be inefficient, but in such case people are divided into two efficient groups with different way of transportation.
(c) The fact that there are some inconvenient factors like rush-hours and other is actually being asserted by someone who says that it's inefficient for so many commuters to take their own cars to work.
