Public transport can offer a cost effective alternative to travel by car, especially when you take into account the true costs of running a car – on top of the purchase costs, there’s fuel, tax, insurance, general maintenance and parking charges. It all adds up and with great deals on season tickets for bus and rail, there’s no better time to make the switch.
