12 miles each way to work.  Figure 1.2 gallons of gas per day round trip in city traffic.  $3.65 a gallon this morning.   $4.38 per day for Gas.

Secure ramp 3 blocks from work.  $115 per month, tax included.
Figure 235 transit days per year after holidays and PTO.
$5.87 per day to park

Total $10.25 per day for gas and parking.  Not to mention stress, wear on car, etc.

Express Bus:  $6 a day.  Less when you calculate it as both a pre-tax commuter benefit and the 10% bonus the transit company pays on pre-pay cards.  I sit back and watch movies and tv shows on my iPad on the way to work and don't even look at the traffic.

Why would I even think of driving?
