Is Technology Making it Easier for American’s to Drive Less?
October 2nd, 2013
U.S. PIRG spokesman Phineas Baxandall said, “For baby boomers, driving one’s car represented freedom and spontaneity. Today – especially for younger people – owning a car is likely to represent big expenses and parking hassles. Meanwhile, technology and vehicle-sharing are making it easier not to own a car or for households to drive less. Public transit systems, especially with on-board WiFi and real-time apps, can be the backbone of this new mobility.”
The American Public Transportation Association (APTA) reported that "70% of adults under 35 use alternatives to driving at least a few times a week." Baxandall added, “New apps make it easy to catch a bus and ride unfamiliar routes."
