Public transportation impacts everything from your wallet to the global environment
(PRWEB) June 26, 2012
With the start of summer, CreditDonkey.com publishes a new infographic to help Americans see the hidden savings of public transportation.
“When you ride the rails, bus, or carpool, the benefits are far-reaching,” says Charles Tran, founder of CreditDonkey.com, a credit card comparison and financial education website. “Public transportation impacts everything from your wallet to the global environment. Plus, in areas where people rely heavily on public transit, there is a noticeable reduction in traffic congestion and stress.”
- When you take public transportation, you are more likely to run other errands on your route, saving you time and money from additional trips with the car.
- Public transportation creates less congestion, saving money and the environment with shorter, less expensive trips for everyone.
- When used regularly, public transportation can reduce the need for some to have a second car (or a car at all). Imagine less debt, fewer car payments, less emissions, and less money spend on repairs and gas.
- Many transit agencies are now replacing old buses with hybrid or hydrogen fuel cell buses. This making public transit even greener, especially when connected to renewable sources such as solar.
