Trains, subways, buses and ferries are effective and efficient ways to commute. Public transportation helps improve mobility and reduce traffic congestion on streets and highways by transporting many people at one time. It is also a cost-effective commuting option because it helps you avoid tolls, parking fees, gas expenses and vehicle wear and tear. Plus, you can catch up on work, read a book, watch a movie on a handheld device or rest while someone else drives.
