Huh... not where I come from. I am well educated, gainfully employed, and not wealthy but perfectly comfortable. I own three nice vehicles, yet I still take the bus back and forth to work every day. It is less stressful and prevents air pollution. Plus, I work downtown in a metropolitan area where I would have to pay for parking if I drove.
Paying for parking is the most ridiculous thing I can think of. I paid to own my car, I pay to register it, I pay to insure it, I pay to maintain it, I pay to re-fuel it, I pay taxes on it. In addition to that, I pay property taxes and sales tax in the city I live in. So I refuse to pay the city even more to allow me to park my own car on land my taxes paid to purchase in order for me to be able to earn a living--all while they tax the salary I am there to earn. No thank you. The poor and stupid decision in this case would be for me NOT to take the bus.0

No. I use public transport all the time and I'm not that poor and probably not stupid either. First off, I'm 15. I get around using trains and trams and occasionally buses, and by cycling for short distances; I can't get a driver's licence. Second, if I could, I would have no use for it in the city where I spend most of my outside free time; there aren't many parkings and you'll have to drive around for like an hour to find a place. Third, public transport isn't free. My train subscription costs like 350 euros a year. If you're poor you probably can't afford that.0
