It's not that you couldn't use the transporters, it's that there were limitations due to interference necessitating the need to use the pattern enhancers. Had you taken a shuttle down you would have had to deal with all the interference to your shuttles sensors and limited visibility while trying to land in the middel of a city, which would have made it a very dangerous ride. It would have also taken a lot longer as you would have had to take the extra time to prep the shuttle, and fly it down there. I also saved you from the scene where you had to run all the way back to where you parked the shuttle.

Don't worry, I didn't forget about the shuttlebay. It figures prominently in part 2. So does that runabout you picked up.
