Green Your Commute Day: Benefits Of Being An Eco-Commuter

green your commute day
When you choose the green commute lifestyle, not only are you helping the environment, there are also some added benefits for you. An eco-commuter is simply someone that chooses to get from place to place through other means than a gas powered vehicle.
 

So, what is in it for you?

 

  • Save Money
When you decide on a green commute option, you will start saving money almost immediately. Some people get rid of their vehicle completely, which results in no more car payments or insurance bill. Even if you don’t do away with your car completely, you reduce the amount of money that you spend on gas per month. Walking is FREE, while the other options are very inexpensive. For MARTA rates, click here. If you’re interested in calculating how much you can save with a green commute option, use the commute calculator here.
  • Productivity
When you are driving a car, you can legally do two things: drive + listen to music. Many eco-commute options allow you to do other things, such as read the newspaper, respond to emails, catch up on work, etc.
  • Health Advantage
The health advantage to eco-commuting is huge! Did you know that sitting in a car is the least healthy commute option? Driving to work is often linked to stress, anxiety and less satisfaction. Many alternatives allow you to get in your daily dose of exercise while commuting. Overall, green commuting has been linked to higher life satisfaction, better health, and improved mood.
  • Ease
Eco-commuting eliminates heavy traffic, making your commute a bit easier. With certain apps, you are able to find the perfect eco-commuting route and your life becomes overall less stressful. For Atlanta specific bike maps and routes, click here.
  • Social
Lastly, eco-commuting gives you a new way to be social. When you try something new, such as taking a train or bus you will start to meet new people effortlessly.
  • Incentives
If you live in certain counties throughout Georgia and are an eco-commuter, then you may be eligible to receive incentives through the program Georgia Commute Options. To see if you qualify for incentives, visit here.
