Taking public transit is less expensive, safer, and better for the environment, when compared to driving alone to work.  Using transit gives you more productive travel time for responding to emails, reading a book, or catching up on social media. 

Riding public transit for even two days per week can save you money on fuel, parking and car maintenance.  The more you ride, the more you save.  Relax, let someone else drive!
