Save $9500 with public transit

Posted by karmalily on October 8, 2008

According to new research released by the American Public Transit Association

A person can achieve an average savings of $9,499 per year by taking public transportation instead of driving… the average annual savings is a third higher than the average amount a household pays for food in a year, according to the Food Institute ($6,111).

We already know carpooling and using public transportation is better for the environment, but the knowledge that you can save almost ten grand by driving yourself is that much more convincing.

It’s time to get on the bus.
