We recently showcases samples from a guide to driving in Denver, as written by a longtime local.
Among his assertions: "The sooner you realize that everyone else is either an idiot, an asshole, or legally blind in this town, the sooner you can make the decision to buy a bike, leave it at home, and ride the bus."
Some commenters seconded this emotion.
But this one has had bad experiences on Denver buses, as she relates below.

I'd still feel safer in a car then a bike. People almost run u over on them. Or a bus — seriously, the bus is not safe anymore. I can't count how many times as a teenager I saw fights on it. Almost got jumped for no reason or if I had a long ride and tried to nap and tried to rest.... I once woke up with a bum sitting right next to me in the back mumbling words at me. I freaked out n got off. So I'm good. I'll keep my car n deal with assholes cutting me off.
