Bumpy Buses

transitIn 2015, intra-city transit ridership declined for the first time in five years as cheap gas pushed Americans into cars. Total ridership fell 1.3% from 2014, the highest annual level since 1958. Of the 10.6 billion trips taken, the number of bus rides fell by 150 million or 2.8%, while subway, train and light rail use collectively rose by a scant 0.2%, its smallest rise since a decline in 2009.
