IMPACT OF PUBLIC TRANSIT TRIPS ON ECONOMY

 

The American Public Transportation Association (APTA) released a report this week called  Who Rides Public TransportationThe study shows 87 percent of public transit trips have a direct impact by connecting people to jobs, retail and entertainment.

The research reveals passengers use of public transit for shopping more than doubled from 2007 (8.5 percent) to 2017 (21 percent), which shows the economic impact of public transportation. 

Findings from the study also showed commuting as the primary trip purpose for many public transit riders with 63 percent using it at least five days a week. Other important data from the study include:

  • Most public transit riders range from 20 to 64 years old, which accounts for 89 percent of transit passengers.
  • Public transit users are multi-modal with 65 percent holding a driver's license.
  • Seventy-seven percent of public transit user households include one or more people working.
