International travel increases 16%, says BTS

Posted on July 1, 2002

During the period from 1990 to 2000, inbound and outbound trips between the United States and other countries increased 16%. The number of trips increased from 315 million in 1990 to 366 million in 2000, reported the Bureau of Transportation Statistics in its U.S. International Travel and Transportation Trends report. Same-day travel with Canada and Mexico accounts for the majority of U.S. international travel. Overnight travel to and from other countries increased 33% during the 10 years, from 84 million trips to 112 million trips. While Europe and Asia are the top destinations and origins for U.S. overseas travel, trips to and from Eastern Europe, the Middle East and South America grew the fastest during the last decade. That was the case for both U.S. outbound and inbound overseas travel.
