Have you ever had a friend or a neighbour trying to convince you that driving their car to the Trim Park N' Ride and taking OC Transpo downtown was more economical than using CR Transpo to get to work? What about driving downtown and paying for parking? Curious to find the truth? (Spoiler: Using CR Transpo will always cost you less!)
The Clarence-Rockland Public Transit Advisory Committee, the official citizen's voice regarding the decision process for matters related to public transit in our City, has developed a tool to help citizens estimate their true commuting costs, including those that people who drive to work often choose to take out of the equation!
This tool will show you the monthly costs for:
1) Driving a car from Clarence-Rockland to downtown;
2) Driving a car to the Orleans Park 'N Ride, and taking OC Transpo downtown;
3) Taking advantage of the CR Transpo service;
4) Enter your own scenario, where you are able to customize gas consumption for your car, depreciation costs based on your vehicle purchase price, your commute to a Rockland Park 'N Ride, and much more.
Take a moment to try out this simple tool, and encourage your friends and neighbours to do the same! In order for this community service to remain affordable and to meet citizens' needs, we need the community to be informed of its benefits and spread the word.
