Did you know public transportation in the United States is a crucial part of the solution to the nation’s economic, energy, and environmental challenges? Public transportation use reduces our nation’s dependence on foreign oil by 4.2 billion gallons of gasoline a year and it also saves 37 million metric tons of carbon emissions annually. It’s also good for you. Studies show public transportation users are generally more active - taking 30% more steps per day than people who rely on cars. And safer. You can reduce your chance of being in an accident by more than 90% simply by taking public transportation as opposed to commuting by car.
