Public Transit Users Can Save $826 a Month Over Driving

Public transit users who live with one less car in a two-person household could save an average of $826 a month or $9,913 a year, according to APTA’s February Transit ­Savings Report.

Cities with the largest monthly savings are New York, $1,227; San Francisco, $1,105; Boston, $1,074; and Philadelphia, $1,000. The calculations are based on the purchase of a monthly public transit pass and factor in local gas prices (as reported by AAA) and the local monthly unreserved parking rate.
