A Better Way To Go

The Providence Business News reported today on a new study published yesterday by the Rhode Island Public Interest Research Group (RIPIRG) about transportation titled "A Better Way to Go."

This Rhode Island-centric report noted "why rail, rapid buses and other forms of mass transportation must play a more prominent role in America's future transportation system." In Rhode Island alone, between the R.I. Public Transportation Authority's bus service and MBTA commuter rail service, 1.57 million gallons of oil were saved at a cost of $4.11 in fuel costs savings and 9,679 tons of carbon dioxide emissions not generated.
