That's the way most transit passes work: you essentially just get the weekends and evenings free and you need to do a round trip commute every working day to break even.

For example, for the HSR:

monthly pass: $87

daily rate for two trips using presto: $4

break even: 21.75 days (which is almost exactly the number of working days per month: 4.3333 weeks per month X 5 days per week = 21.67)

There is really no discount on the monthly pass for people who only commute by bus and don't use it for other trips.

Why is parking priced so differently? Daily parking rates should be cheaper relative to monthly rates (or, equivalently, monthly rates should be higher). Obviously lots that have only monthly or only daily parking are a different matter since daily lots also want to keep turnover high.
