How You Can Save $9,087 a Year

The American Public Transit Association, a national association of transit systems and related firms, released a study this week which estimates that: “Individuals who ride public transportation can save on average $9,293 annually based on the April 5, 2010 national average gas price and the national unreserved monthly parking rate. On a per month basis, transit riders can save on average $774 per month. Over the past month the cost per gallon of gas has increased 13 cents.”

The figures for the Washington, D.C. area are a little lower. Savings in this area are only $9,087.  You can find the report here:
