You already paid for the service through your student fees, but here are a few more reasons why you should consider riding Petaluma Transit.
As a SRJC student, you get to ride Petaluma Transit for FREE which is good news now that gas prices are back on the rise. If you live and work on route, you can get to just about anywhere you need to go in the City of Petaluma using the bus! Ride the bus to save money on gas, oil changes, vehicle maintenance, and a Semester Parking Pass.
Studies continue to show that public transit is safer than driving an automobile. According to National Safety Council data, riding the bus is 170 times safer than riding in a car! As an added bonus, public transportation can reduce the number of cars on the road, meaning less traffic congestion and fewer chances for accidents.
People who use the bus as their main mode of transportation tend to be in better physical shape than those using their cars. By getting outside and walking to the closest bus stop, transit users are getting more exercise and fighting obesity. Riding on the bus is also much less stressful than driving! Stress and frustration from driving have been linked to high blood pressure, cardiovascular disease and overall decreased immune function which can lead to more colds and general illness.
Environment & Resources
Currently, Americans use more energy for transportation than for commercial, residential or industrial use. Did you know that buses emit 80% less carbon monoxide than the average car? Switching to public transit can also have a huge impact on gasoline use. If Americans used public transportation for just 10% of their daily travel needs, the U.S. would reduce its dependence on imported oil by more than 40%.
Public transportation can be an important factor in economic development. Transportation can also level the playing field for low income individuals or anyone who does not own a vehicle. Transit systems allow them to more easily find employment and get to work. Getting out on the bus is also a great way to meet new people in your community and make new friends.
