The average cost to keep a car in America is $10,411 per year. This includes car payment ($6,648), gas ($1,355), repairs ($1,191), insurance ($1,202) and taxes ($639).
In contrast, the average cost of public transportation is only $702.36 per year. Here, employees can save quite a bit by taking the bus or subway to work instead of their car.
There is also great potential for employers to save costs if they have fewer expenses for the parking infrastructure with monitoring and maintenance of the parking spaces. In addition, fewer parking spaces are needed and at the same time something good is done for the environment.
