Commute Calculator

We wanted to give Triad commuters a way to find out exactly how much their daily trips cost them, as well as see how much they could be saving by finding a carpool partner, arranging a PART Vanpool with your co-workers, or riding a PART Express bus.

With some basic information, our Commute Calculator gives you an easy way to explore these options — and the results might surprise you!
