The American Public Transportation Association (APTA) created a new online quiz based on recent research on how the millennial generation gets around town. The "How Millennial are Your Local Travel Habits" online quiz compares the quiz participant's local travel habits to this tech-savvy 18 to 34 year old generation.

The millennial generation, those born between 1982 and 2004, are the largest generation in history and the most diverse. This generation is having a great impact on today's and tomorrow's local transportation system. Millennials are also living through times of economic dislocation and technological change. The combination of technological change, such as the advent of smartphone technology combined with macro forces shapes how millennials get around and how local transportation systems deliver service to this generation.

Find out how your local travel habits compare to the millennial generation by taking the quiz and share your results on twitter using #millennialtransit. To access the quiz, click here.
