Transportation experts are recommending that travelers take the bus and train, rather than taking a car, carpool or ride-sharing services, when they plan to travel.
But the experts also cautioned against putting a price on getting a ride.
The experts said it’s best to take a car or carpool when possible, and take public transportation when possible.
Travelers who do take a public transportation option should also consider the cost, the experts said.
The experts said the biggest obstacle to getting a public transit card is getting a car.
The most common reasons people choose to get a public transport card are to avoid paying for gas, or to get around congested neighborhoods.
And the experts pointed out that getting a transit card may not be as cheap as paying for a car with a gas card.
The people most likely to take the transit card are people who live in cities with high car ownership, and people who want to get to and from the places where they live, they said.
