Car rental over Public transportation

in Public

Why do commuters prefer personalized transport services over public transports? This thought provoking question struck me while I was reading about enormous growth of car rental companies and agencies. Considering the facts like- money and safety, public transport is any day safer; for you travel with so many co-passengers. Studies show that to travel in public transport is 79% more safe and cheap because you share prices, families that use public transportation can reduce their household expenses by $6,200 annually, more than what an average household spends on food every year.

Then what makes commuters to pay extra money for car rental without even considering public transport options available. Government all over the world has been exhausting economic resources on making and maintaining buses, railways, metro trains, trams etc.

But instead of public transportation services bilutleie as a Norwegian would say (car rental in Norwegian language) is growing rapidly. Counting reasons for this failure isn't difficult, firstly public transport (even if we may cut cost of fuel consumption and costs of accidents), increases time used in travelling. Secondly transit schedules discourage use of Mass Transit. Waiting for transport or delay in departure may end up in causing irredeemable loss.


Then another problem at the heart of the debate is that good public transportation systems are not available to enough people. While public transportation is readily available in many metro cities, for the majority of commuters in smaller cities, towns and rural areas there is either no access or a very poor access to public transportation. Frequent strikes, price hikes, and poor maintenance are some of the other de-motivating facts adding up to the problems of public transport.

Therefore people choose private or hired cars over this system. Bilutleie (car rental) are gaining popularity because of their swift, timely services. A lot of people traveling from one city to another for business purpose prefer rental cars. It may be a little costly option but as it is said a bird in hand is worth two in the bush, rented car makes sure that its client reach their destination as soon as possible. This way you save your business meeting and car renters' save time for another customer.

These agencies avail there services in the remotest part which means better connectivity not only in a metro city but also in towns, suburbs, and rural area.
