Riding ART Can Save You $

October 15, 2010

Want to save $9,381 a year? According to a report by the American Public Transportation Association (APTA) that's how much the average individual can save by taking public transportation. Think of what you could do with all that money!

The report examines how an individual in a two-person household can save money by taking public transportation and living with one less car. According to the report, the average savings for a person living in Washington D.C. would be about $760 a month and $9,115 a year.*

By taking transit, individuals would save money on gas, parking, tolls, car payments and maintenance. Not to mention reducing their carbon footprint.

Not only is taking transit good for the environment, but it's also good for your wallet!


*The numbers are based on the purchase of a monthly public transit pass and factoring in local gas prices and the local monthly unreserved parking rate.
