BWAT Commuters Pass One Million Mark Using Regional Bus Routes & Extended Hours

masstransitmag : "“Once they get used to it, commuters tell us they enjoy starting their morning by reading the news, thumbing through Facebook and planning their day,” said Jim Wilson, BWAT general manager. “Riding the bus to work can also offer a significant cost savings.”
A person who takes public transit instead of making a daily commute by car will experience an annual savings of $9,712, according to the American Public Transportation Association. These savings are based on the cost of commuting by public transportation compared to the cost of owning and driving a vehicle (based on the December 21, 2016, national average gas price of $2.25 per gallon and the national monthly parking rate of $166.26)."
