NYCT is followed by Metro (Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority) (2,723), Pace Suburban Bus (2,392), New Jersey Transit (2,373) and the Toronto Transit Commission (1,998).

Despite the funding issues, agencies report they are doing all they can to work smarter while continuing to grow ridership.
