“As gas prices rise, using public transportation is the quickest way people can beat high gasoline prices,” states William Millar, president American Public Transportation Association (APTA).

As uncertainty in other parts of the world persists, and Americans continue to suffer economic woes, making the change to public transit today gives individuals the opportunity to lower their transportation costs, without sacrificing their freedom and mobility. Switching from driving to riding public transportation for even a few of their trips is a proven way for individuals to cut monthly and yearly transportation costs.


The national average for a monthly unreserved parking space in a downtown business district is $161.56, according to the 2010 Colliers International Parking Rate Study. Over the course of a year, parking costs for a vehicle can amount to an average of $1,939.


With all that being said, its expensive to drive your own car, and even car pool at that sometimes. So maybe we should all just stick to public transportation? As also these are said to be the highest numbers in the last 2 years.Would you guys rather take public Transportation?

A chart is post in there website.

be prepared for rising gasoline prices.
The Japan earthquake will have a effect on people around the world. North America will feel it badly.
The oil refineries in Japan are in trouble and if that does go, we will pay much more than we are now.

Is anyone keeping track of the situation in Japan?

I live up in Canada Toronto.

The transportation compared to places ive been to is completely garbage, parking is expensive, and buses never run on time, and the system is split into 2 so if you ever had to, you would have to pay 2 different fairs once going onto a different system.The best public transportation i have ever experience is Hong Kong everything is on time, and buss fair is cheap, everything is clean and they have 100000000000 buses.

Best solution for me.. car pooling..

Not a hater, but that city is a dump. It's only good for it's entertainment district with the clubs and HOT chicks :D ohhh yeah

When ever I'm in Toronto I'm always driving, never taking the transit. Traffic their is horrible, compact cars like the Scion iQ in Toronto will do good for the city. I think Scion built the iQ for big cities like Toronto, New York, L.A., etc etc
