Whether you want to get healthier, save money, or use your time more effectively, changing your commute can help make your resolution a reality.
New Year, New Commute wants to help you learn about alternatives to driving alone, so you can meet your goals in 2018.
1) Get More Exercise
Public transit users get more physical activity than those who drive alone, three times as much!
Get on the bus, turn on your step counters, and you'll have your 10,000 in no time, all without making a special trip to the gym.
Your commute could be the key to losing a few pounds!
2) Save Money
The annual cost to own and operate a vehicle is $8,698.
To put that in perspective, the average cost of a week-long Caribbean vacation for four is $7,000. Most people can't abandon their vehicles completely to pad their getaway funds, but changing your commute just once a week can have a big impact on your budget.

3) Live Your Best Life
If you want to get organized, use your time effectively, and de-stress, we suggest you get out of your car and into a commute that can work for you, instead of against you.
Catch up on your reading, work on your budget, and plan a month's worth of healthy meals while you ride. Taking the bus or carpooling to work lets you carve a little out of your day just for you.
