Catch Public Transport

Why should I choose public transport?

When the roads are clogged and there’s no car parking because everyone is going the same way at the same time, choosing the public transport alternative makes a lot of sense. One full bus can take more than 50 cars off the road, a full train more than 600 cars off the road. A trip by public transport releases far fewer carbon emissions than a car trip.

Taking public transport also saves you all the associated costs of owning and maintaining a car including parking fees, insurance, fuel, repairs, servicing and registration.
