3 Reasons to Dump the Pump

1. Public Transportation saves you money.

Did you know? A two-person household can save, on average, $9,823 a year by downsizing to one car.

Calculate your savings here. Ch-ching!  

2. Fewer cars means cleaner air.

Did you know? A single person can reduce his or her daily carbon emissions by 20 pounds, or more than 4,800 pounds in a year, by using public transit.

Use this handy carbon-saving calculator to see how it all adds up. 

3. Save time. Lots of time.

Did you know? Public transportation use for just one year in most major metro areas can save 865 million hours of travel time and 450 million gallons of fuel.
