Brookings recommentions: More government intervention for commuting

The Brookings Institution is out with its 2010 State of Metropolitian America study.  The "Commuting" chapter offers the following nuggets of wisdom:
Driving remains, by a long shot, the primary commuting mode in America.  While driving alone to work had underwent [sic] a small loss in commuting share during the last decade, carpooling use declined significantly.
[V]ery few of the largest metro areas are seeing dramatic changes toward a "greener," lower-carbon commuting future.
Less than 2 percent of the workforce in half of the 100 largest metro areas commuted by transit.
