From Roads&Bridges Executive News Summary:
Now, is it us, or does the math in this article not make any sense at all?
Foregoing all of the arguments against public transport, namely its poor coverage, and lack of convenience, and dealing strictly with the math:
we rode the train a couple weeks ago, to attend the Tribe home opener. Cost …$5.00 round trip. Now, it costs 2 gallons of gas to drive to work, so rounding up, that’s $6.00. If we took the train, we would save $1.00 per day. 50 weeks x 5 days x $1 = $250.
We understand the parking costs, even though we don’t have any here.
Again, are we missing something? Where’s the $9 Grand in savings?
We think this is a poorly written or edited article, or, it’s yet another press release sent out under the guise of cost analysis, to promote an issue, with no facts at all behind the premise.
Then again, it could be us.none
