APTA: Public transportation users save $10,103 annually

Posted on March 21, 2014

Public transportation users can save, on average, more than $842 this month, and $10,103 annually, representing an increase of 22 cents over last month’s gas prices, according to the American Public Transportation Association’s (APTA) March Transit Savings Report.

The savings are based on the cost of commuting by public transportation compared to the cost of owning and driving a vehicle, which includes the March 19, 2014 average national gas price of $3.53 per gallon and the national unreserved monthly parking rate.

APTA releases this monthly Transit Savings Report to examine how an individual in a two-person household can save money by taking public transportation and living with one less car.
