The American Public Transportation Association indicates that regular commuters may be able to save as much as $9,635 by using public transportation instead of owning and driving their own car. Consider this, Radford Transit offers an unlimited ride monthly pass for $20. If you bought a pass for every month of the year and that was all the money you spent on transportation for the whole year, your total annual transportation cost would be $240. Compare that with the costs of owning a car.
- Monthly car payment = about $300
- Monthly insurance = about $60
- Monthly gas = at least $40
- Monthly maintenance = at least $50
Total annual cost of driving if still paying on a car = at least $5400
Total annual cost of driving if your car is paid for = about $1800
Total annual cost of riding Radford Transit = $240
