Does part of your New Year’s resolution have to do with saving money? How about getting healthy? Maybe it’s to help out your community? Well you can do all that and more just by using a commute alternative like walking, carpooling, riding the bus, bicycling or vanpooling.
Save Money; for many commuters the average cost of commuting is $277, depending on what mode of commute alternative used a commuter can save anywhere from 50% to 100% of their commuting cost.
Getting Healthy; many people don’t think about their commute as a chance to get in exercise but active transportation is a terrific way of getting in your 30 minutes of doctor recommended exercise every day.
Helping your Community; commute alternatives are a proven way to help reduce air pollution, traffic congestion and fuel consumption making the Inland Northwest a better place to live, work, and play.
