Save Money on Transport

Since I have recently move back into the city, I have once again been exposed to the daily commute. I thought I would take the opportunity to talk about something most of you will have already heard of. Public Transport.

Like it, or hate it, public transport serves thousands of people daily, and many are very happy with their chosen transport. The benefits inclue both saving the environment, and your wallet. The amount of money you save can be very impressive.

If you drive into the city every day, chances are you will most likely have to pay for a parking permit. These can be quite costly (up to around $420 a month for an inner city car park here), and even excluding the amount you spend on petrol, just by taking public transport you can save money every day.

If you were to simply go into the city by train, then back out by train (for arguments sake) you will only spend around $4.00 a day. Very cheap.

I challenge you to investigate your options, and try public transport. You don't have to go all out, and sell your car, just use public transport for your commute, and that way you spend less running your car.  It really is a great option if you want to save money.
