Views: 2584
American Public Transportation Association’s (APTA) October Transit Savings Report,  . . . individuals who ride public transportation instead of driving can save, on average,
. . . $828 this month, and $9,934 annually.  
These savings are based on the cost of commuting by public transportation
. . . compared to the cost of owning and driving a vehicle
. . . which includes the October 24, 2012 average national gas price
. . . ($3.63 per gallon- reported by AAA) and
. . . the national unreserved monthly parking rate.  
APTA notes a simple way to avoid the rising parking rates
. . . is to swap your daily car trip for travel on your local bus or train.
