Further, people who use the bus as their main mode of transportation tend to be in better physical shape than those using their cars. By getting outside and walking to the closest bus stop, transit users are getting more exercise and fighting obesity. Riding on the bus is also much less stressful than driving! Stress and frustration from driving have been linked to high blood pressure, cardiovascular disease and overall decreased immune function which can lead to more colds and general illness.
I would highly encourage your father to CONTINUE to use transit! It is a safe option and better for his health!
