April Transit Savings Report


  •  As Gas Prices Begin to Rise, Public Transportation Remains a Smart Option


    Washington, D.C.  As we head into the summer travel months, gas prices are beginning to climb their way back up from previous low levels.  The national average gas price for self-serve regular unleaded rose another 12 cents over a month ago.  This provides an opportunity for public transit commuters to continue to save big bucks over their driving counterparts.
    For instance this month, the annual savings for public transit riders is $9,394, according to the American Public Transportation Association’s (APTA) April Transit Savings Report. Individuals who ride public transportation instead of driving can also save, on average, more than $783 per month. Commuting by public transit provides the opportunity to read, check emails, or grab some precious time to refocus and refresh as you travel to and from work.

    These savings are based on the cost of commuting by public transportation compared to the cost of owning and driving a vehicle which includes the April 27, 2015 average national gas price ($2.54 per gallon- reported by AAA), and the national unreserved monthly parking rate numbers.  

    APTA releases this monthly Transit Savings Report to examine how an individual in a two-person household can save money by taking public transportation and living with one less car.

    The national average for a monthly unreserved parking space in a downtown business district is $166.26, according to the2012 Colliers International Parking Rate Study, which is the most recent report available.  Over the course of a year, parking costs for a vehicle can amount to an average of $1,995.

    The top 20 cities with the highest public transit ridership are ranked in order of their transit savings based on the purchase of a monthly public transit pass.  The savings also factor in local gas prices for April 27, 2015 and the local monthly unreserved parking rate.*

    *Based on gasoline prices as reported by AAA on 4/27/15


    APTA calculates the average cost of taking public transit by determining the cost of the average monthly transit pass of local public transit agencies across the country.  This information is based on the annual APTA fare collection survey and is weighted based on ridership (unlinked passenger trips).  The assumption is that a person making a switch to public transportation would likely purchase an unlimited pass on the local public transit agency, typically available on a monthly basis. 

    APTA then compares the average monthly transit fare to the average cost of driving.  The cost of driving is calculated using the 2014 AAA average cost of driving formula.  That formula is based on variable and fixed costs.  The variable costs include the cost of gas, maintenance and tires.  The fixed costs include insurance, license registration, depreciation and finance charges.  The comparison also uses the average mileage of a mid-size auto at 23.1 miles per gallon and the price for self-serve regular unleaded gasoline as recorded by AAA on April 27, 2015 at $2.54 per gallon.  The analysis also assumes that a person will drive an average of 15,000 miles per year.  The savings is based on the assumption that a person in a two-person household lives with one less car.
In determining the cost of parking, APTA uses the data from the 2012 Colliers International Parking Rate Study for monthly unreserved parking rates for the United States which is the most recent report available.
