The typical European car is parked 92% of the time. It spends 1/3rd of its driving time looking for parking. Its 5 seats only move 1.5 people. 86% of its fuel never reaches the wheels, & most of the energy that does, moves the car, not people. #CityMakingMath

Still think drivers pay their way & people on bikes are “getting a free ride?” If commuters had to pay for their impact on society, drivers would pay 87 cents/km. People on bikes would GET 25 cents/km.

Commuting by bike saves society money. #CityMakingMath

“We know factually that walking & biking are the two ways of getting around that actually save society money for each km travelled. And that’s even before we consider all the many benefits that aren’t just about money.” #CityMakingMath Me, in @DailyHiveVan dailyhive.com/vancouver/biki…
What’s the full cost of this 5 km #Vancouver commute?

Driving costs society $2.78.
Riding the bus costs society 38¢.
Biking SAVES society 75¢.
Walking SAVES society $1.08.

So who’s REALLY paying their way? #CityMakingMath Via @thediscourse HT @grescoe thediscourse.ca/scarborough/fu…
