Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I've always envisioned a commuter vehicle smaller than the Smart Car that would be driven to the local rail station and then onto a special flatbed car. One would  stay in one's vehicle while the train went into the downtown and then drive off to go the last mile.

Yeah, it's called a bicycle. Or, for those unwilling or unable to pedal, a moped/scooter.

As for "the last mile", it's a 15 minute walk so why not walk it? And if we're talking about the last 5 miles, buses should be fine. After all, we're assuming people are commuting by rail into a high-density urban area.
