I think being stuck on a bus for two or more days surrounded by passengers needing a bath is the primary, and largely unsoluble, downside to bus usage. The expense (last time I checked, which was not recently), being only slightly less than the actual cost of gas from origination to destination, was also a downside, which also ties to having a car at the destination or not having one.

The only upside at all is someone else driving. Not a big enough uptick.

If you have a reliable car, it's much more convenient to drive it yourself. And that isn't likely to change.
