Reader response

Here's some reader response to the effect of rising gas costs on work/life balance. It's from the marketing director of Tri-Rail.

Hi Cindy,

Your article on people changing their patterns due to the high cost of commuting couldn’t come at a better time for us. This week, we increased service by 33%, going from 30 to 40 trains a day. Workers can commute for as little as $60 a month if their companies are members of our Employer Discount Program. That tariff also includes free transfers to the county buses and Metrorail. Weekend fares are as low as $2 to ride all day Saturday or Sunday. Hopefully, more commuters will begin to consider public transportation as an alternative to the high cost of driving.
