While we’re trying to help Boston #ParkEasier, the hard fact is you’ve got to drive yourself into Boston for this to happen. Commuting can be a hassle, but do you really know how much time, energy and money goes into getting you to work each morning? Check out your commute, by the numbers, we’ve found some facts you might not know!
If you think you’re the only one who sits through traffic in their car alone….40.6 percent of Bostonians who drive to work, do it alone.
If you think you’ve got the longest commute in the world…know that Bostonian’s on average spend about 29.5 minutes getting to the office every day, and that becomes 33% longer when they’re headed home on a Friday evening. To top it all off, Boston ranks in the top 10 cities for time wasted in traffic; on average, we spend 64 hours annually in gridlock.
If you think you found a prime parking space… know that on average, a monthly parking space will run you $438 in Boston. If you use SPOT, it’s almost guaranteed to be way less, with the average monthly rental ringing in at only $200.
And if you think street or garage parking is the best option…keep in mind that 20% of all car collisions happen when cars are parked in garages or lots. Lucky for you, we’ve got private, off street parking just waiting for you!
So, while we can’t get rid of traffic, or find you a commuting buddy, we can help make your life just a little bit easier, and your parking a lot safer through the SPOT App. Make it to work without having to search for a parking, and rest assured, you’ll be out of harm’s way; for way cheaper than the garage you normally use!
