Well, in the Metroplex, there are buses and trains. However, the trains are exceptionally limited (two lines, right now) and the area is very spread out.
Also, each city has its own public transportation system, and they are not interconnected. Some lines cross over, but it's damn near impossible to get from one place to another. And if you're too far from the 'big' cities, there's no service at all.
It's been awhile since I checked, but I think my 12 mile trip to work would take about 45 minutes by public transportation, and I'd still have to drive to the station.
