  • Safety - Driving in a bus is 79 times safer than riding in an automobile, and taking the train or metro is even safer.
  • Cost savings - According to a study, families that use public transportation can reduce their household expenses by a significant amount
  • Improves Air Quality - Public transportation helps promote cleaner air by reducing automobile use, which can help reduce smog and public health problems. For each mile travelled, fewer pollutants are emitted by transit vehicles than by a single - passenger automobile.
