Transportation Savings Calculator


This calculator helps commuters and people considering periodic trips estimate how much they might be able to save if they shifted to an alternative like walking, biking or public transportation instead of driving their vehicle. Savings can be estimated for individual or recurring trips using either the cost of fuel or the mileage method. The gasoline method only accounts for the cost of fuel while the mileage method also values your time and vehicle depreciation. If you are making a round-trip and enter in one-way information be sure to either enter the frequence as twice per day or input the roundtrip mileage in your trip details.
