Riding public transit, when you can, is beneficial in many ways. Economically, it’s cost effective - especially with soaring gas prices. It also reduces your stress levels– someone else is driving. And, it goes a long way toward helping our environment – it conserves natural resources, reduces air pollution and harmful ozone levels. When it comes to our environment, riding public transit makes a big difference!
