Came across this article:

http://www.lafn.org/~dave/trans/energy/does_mt_saveE.html
Quote:

1996 (Revised 2003, 2006) Shows that the increase in energy efficiency of the automobile after 1970 and the decline of mass transit efficiency has resulted in mass transit being little more energy efficient than the auto. Furthermore, the additional travel engendered by new mass transit systems tends to result in further increased energy consumption. Compares the technologies of the auto to both bus and rail and explains efficiency in terms of the vehicle's resistance to motion. Previous title: "Why Mass Transit Wastes Energy".
