26/01/2015 | ‘Safe’ public transport saves money as well as lives
By comparing the rate of accidents involving the private car compared to public transport, it is very clear that travelling by public transport is much safer and produces far fewer accidents (estimated as 10 times safer by Todd Litman, 2009). A modal shift from the private car to public transport would not only save lives but save public money too. Crashes cost money, not just to the private car owner but to the public purse (think health service, first responders, infrastructure damage and so on).
