Transit Savings Report

Once a month, the American Public Transportation Association (APTA) releases a “Transit Savings Report” which shows how much an individual who switches from driving to taking public transit, and living with one less car, can save on a monthly and yearly basis. The top 20 cities with the highest transit ridership are ranked in order of their transit savings based on the purchase of a monthly public transit pass, and factoring in local gas prices. The latest report can be found here.

  • 76% of public funding for transit is spent creating and supporting hundreds of thousands of private sector jobs
