News: U.S. Use of Public Transportation Highest in 50 Years

Via GCC:

Quote:
Public transportation use is up 32% since 1995, a figure that is more than double the growth rate of the population (15%) and up substantially over the growth rate for the vehicle miles traveled (VMT) on US highways (24%) for that same period.
The biggest increases in order of magnitude:

- Light rail (modern trolleys, LRT, etc.)
- Commuter rail
- Subways
- Bus
