5 Reasons Why Choosing Public Transit Rocks!

5 Reasons Why Choosing Public Transit Rocks!

 

So, you’re thinking about using public transportation, but you’re not sure if it’s right for you? Maybe you’re tired of the soaring gas prices, you want to help the environment, lost your license (hey, we’re not judging!), or any of the other multitude of reasons public transportation is on your mind. It’s true taking public transit had a bad rap in the past, but times are changing, and people are seeing the value it offers. But hey, if you’re not sold yet, these five reasons are sure to get you on the public transit train, no pun intended (well, maybe a little.)

 

  1. Save Money

Ok, now we have your attention! People who choose public transit typically save over $9,500 every year; that’s over $750 a month. With the way gas prices are rising, that number will only grow, which is no wonder why so many people are switching to public transportation. Think of what you could do with an extra $10k; choosing public transit is truly life-changing!

 

  1. Stay Safe

It’s proven that public transportation is significantly safer than using a private vehicle, which makes it a no-brainer if you ask us. Keep you and your family safe by choosing to skip the metal deathtrap you call a car and ride our comfortable and secure public transportation.

 

  1. Become An Environmental Crusader

Ok, so you may not become an environmentalist, but public transit is way better for the environment. One bus can replace 80 to 100 cars, which is insane if you think about it. By lowering the number of vehicles on the road, you help decrease emissions, keeping the your city cleaner. Now that’s a breath of fresh air! It also stops harmful toxins from corroding the ozone layer (remember that thing?), protecting us from the sun’s harmful rays. Yep, that sounds like an environmental crusader to us!

 

  1. More Time For Relaxation

Self-care is essential for mental well-being, and when you ride on public transit, you have plenty of time to relax and unwind. You don’t have to worry about crazy drivers or staying under the speed limit; instead, you can focus on what matters, getting some much-deserved time to recharge.

 

  1. Become More Attractive – No, Really!

Did you know that people who use public transportation lead a more active lifestyle and take a higher number of steps per day than those driving a personal vehicle? This active lifestyle can help you burn more calories, possibly leading to weight loss and decreasing your chances of sickness or disease. We can’t promise it’ll make you look like a supermodel or bodybuilder, but it’s a great way to keep your body moving, which makes you incredibly attractive to us!

 

At the Montgomery Transit, we believe in the power of public transportation to change people’s lives. By creating the ability to safely and easily travel throughout the city, more and more people are ditching their vehicles and choosing public transit. Whatever your reason for riding with us, we’re proud to offer extensive route options at low prices, so you can focus on what matters most to you. You can’t go wrong when you choose Montgomery Transit!
