Its actually more environmentally friendly the way they have it set up now.

Yes, they could build houses, but most of the employees don't want to live in AC. AC has alot of crime, the schools suck, and its a tourist spot. I would not want to live there, even if I did work there. Why live on a "residentially" crappy island when the mainland is so much nicer?

So instead of having everyone drive in and conjest the highways (only 2 major ones going into AC), they have them park and mass-commute on in.
