5 Ways to Cut Your Commuting Costs

cut your commuting costs

Driving to work can sometimes take forever. Weaving in and out of city traffic is enough to make even the most relaxed person stressed out. Not only is it frustrating, but it can also be expensive. At Larry Jay Mitsubishi, we understand your pain. That’s why we’ve compiled a list of five ways you can cut your commuting costs.

 

  1. Find the Best Gas Prices

No one likes paying for gas, but if you’re going to drive anywhere, it’s something you’re going to have to do. So why pay more than you have to? Use apps like GasBuddy to find the cheapest gas in your area.

  1. Carpool with a Co-Worker

Got a friend at work? Consider setting up a carpool together. Taking one vehicle will save you both a lot more money than taking separate vehicles. Plus, it will give you a chance to converse with one another.

  1. Use Mass Transit

Sometimes city bus or train systems can take longer to get to work than taking a car. But in the long run, they are much less expensive. By taking a bus or train to work, you end up saving a lot of money.

  1. Bike to Work

If you live in the city, there’s no need to drive through heavy city traffic—bike to work instead. Not only will you get there faster, but you will also be getting healthier by exercising.

  1. Work Remotely

If your job offers you the opportunity to work from home, seize it. Working remotely will allow you to get your job done in the comforts of your own home. You won’t even have to drive to work at all!

 

Whether you bike, bus, or buddy up, there are plenty of ways to make that annoying and expensive commute a little more tolerable—and perhaps even enjoyable.
