Have you ever sat in traffic on the way to work and wondered “Would it be easier or faster to take the light rail?” or thought “I could have gotten here without paying parking if I just hopped on the bus.”
Well, we did a little experiment that may help you with getting around in the Queen City. We took the bus, light rail and drove a car to the same destination to compare the travel time.
The starting point was at the I-485 station on South Boulevard and ended at the Bank of America plaza. Here are our results.
|Form of Transportation||Travel Time||Cost|
|Driving||33 mins||$20 parking|
|Light rail||31 mins||$2 for round trip|
|Bus||1:25 mins||$4 for round trip|
