Honolulu Ranks 7th in National Transit Savings Study

As students head back to school in droves and traffic congestion once again consumes the H-1 Lunalilo Freeway, American Public Transportation Association released its August 2014 Transit Savings Report that shows Honolulu ranks 7th in the nation for savings when using mass transit.

According to APTA's report, Honolulu residents who choose to use transit rather than driving can save $11,774 annually. That annual savings takes into account the cost of owning and operating a vehicle, including car payments, fuel costs, insurance, parking and vehicle service and maintenance expenses.

Honolulu has been consistently ranked in the top 10 cities in the U.S. for public transportation, largely due to its award-winning bus system. Once rail is fully operational in 2019 and integrated with TheBus, island residents will experience one of the best multimodal transit systems in the nation. 

The combined bus/rail service will be fast, convenient and reliable. And commuters can sit back and enjoy the ride, instead of fighting traffic congestion.
