The Benefits of Mass Transit, in one Incredible Infographic

Kaid Benfield directs our attention to "a terrific, poster-sized graphic highlighting the benefits of public transportation" that was created by an unlikely source - a credit card comparison website.

According to Benfield, "The very well-made display was created, somewhat improbably, by Boris at Credit Donkey, a website whose primary function seems to be to explicate the world of credit cards to consumers." 

"The graphic is based on research by Kelly Teh. The link between an environmental cause and a site primarily devoted to credit cards is, I suppose, household expenses.  Taking transit saves household expenses," writes Benfield.
