How Public Transport System Supports Economy
The communities that employ public transport are much more economically stable and healthier. Lesser cars on the road means lesser pollution in terms of air and noise. You won’t have people filling up separate gas tanks to go in the same direction either and since gas and petrol are exhaustible resources it’s always best that we conserve them to the best of our abilities. With more people using public transport, everyone will be able to get to their destinations faster as there’s going to be less congestion on the road.
Think about it, you can have 10 people in the bus going to some stop along the same route. Or you can have each of them with their own cars fuelling up their tanks separately thereby equally spending a lot more than just taking the bus. This is equally true for travel between cities as much as it is within cities. Many buses offer incredibly affordable packages to far away locations, just look at the fares on ourbus.com/routes/tampa-to-fortlauderdale for a bus ride from Tampa to Fort Lauderdale. If you take your car, you’ll have to drive the whole way there and that can be physically and mentally exhausting.
If you don’t want to go through that, you can make a few stops to rest on the way but that just makes an already long journey even longer and once you get there you have to worry about where your car is going to park the whole time. Some places charge more the longer you’re parked for and the total price for maintaining your car on the trip could have just been put towards public transport making it a lot easier and especially cheaper. Public transport helps to keep the streets free of an overwhelming number of vehicles.
