* Drive alone cost estimates assume a vehicle is driven 15,000 miles per year and accounts for average vehicle operating costs (maintenance, repair, tires) and average ownership costs (full-coverage insurance, license, registration, taxes, depreciation, and finance charges) based on AAA "Your Driving Costs 2018" brochure. The cost per mile value takes an average based on a range of vehicles (small sedan to a large sedan, small SUV to a pickup truck). Cost estimates do not account for vehicle loan payments.

** Vanpool costs are based on average lease costs for 7 and 15 passenger vans. The SANDAG $400/month subsidy has been applied.

*** Transit prices are based on purchase of full fare adult Day or Monthly Pass. Annual transit costs equal Monthly Pass price x 12. Senior/Disabled/Medicare and Youth discount passes are available for those who qualify.
