The hidden cost of living in the suburbs: Transportation - by Christina Pomoni - Helium: "Many people consider that living in the suburbs is cheaper than living in the city. This is because the high costs of housing put in the shadow the accessibility to public transportation or other benefits of living in the city. However, when transportation costs are taken into consideration, living in the suburbs is more expensive. In fact, the hidden costs of transportation may increase the cost of living in the suburbs even by 33%."
