Even with all of that traffic--a newly released study shows we're actually driving less in San Antonio and other big cities across Texas.
According to the Texas Public Interest Research Group--that includes more people hopping on buses.
"In Austin for example--we've seen a 37% increase in passenger miles traveled--which means an increase in the use of public transportation" said Sara Smith with TXPirg--who told 550 KTSA News that same type of increase can be seen in San Antonio in recent years.
"San Antonio has seen a 10% increase in passenger miles travelled--that ranks it about 49th out of 100 of the nation's biggest metropolitan areas" Smith said. As for what's driving the trend--the study said you can thank millenials.
"On the whole, millenials just choose to drive less--they're more excited about public transportation and green and clean options" Smith said, adding the results of the study are very clear.
"We want to see more money going to public transportation and alternative forms of transportation--instead of just putting money in to expensive highway projects" Smith said.
