However, have you considered how taking the bus can help you be more physically active? Using public transit requires a walk or bike ride to and from the bus stop. It also means that errands during the day or a trip to pick up lunch must be done on foot or by bike as well. A 15 minute walk to and from the nearest bus stop can help you get the 30 minutes of daily physically activity that health experts recommend…without going to the gym!
