Transit is a Bargain, Thanks to Skyrocketing Gas Prices

A new report from the American Public Transit Association shows how transit riders are saving a bundle in comparison with car commuters, particularly when you factor in the rising cost of gasoline.

The average price of a gallon of gas is up 28 cents since the beginning of February, giving transit riders the best deal since two years ago.

From APTA's press release:

""As gas prices rise, using public transportation is the quickest way people can beat high gasoline prices," states William Millar, president American Public Transportation Association (APTA).

As uncertainty in other parts of the world persists, and Americans continue to suffer economic woes, making the change to public transit today gives individuals the opportunity to lower their transportation costs, without sacrificing their freedom and mobility."
