I would expect that the closest to real answer lies in the general fact that most US airports weren't designed with bus gates in the field, and most US airports don't have much in the common use department. It isn't as simple as plopping a plane down somewhere in the (don't say) tarmac and pulling up buses that can just drive anywhere to get you to the terminal building (you know, right after you disembark, walk down the stairs, and are greeted with a kiss and a lei).
