SAN FRANCISCO — KPIX 5 reported that the Metropolitan Transportation Commission (MTC) found there has been a 3% overall transit ridership increase over the past two decades, but a 14% decline in per capita transit ridership, during that same time in the Bay Area. When factoring in population growth, the numbers are believed to show the region is becoming less dependent on public transit.

With more people riding Bay Area Rapid Transit and Caltrain rail lines and fewer using Bay Area buses, the MTC is unable to explain why the trend is occurring, however, service cuts and sprawling growth in suburban areas were cited as possible factors.

One solution mentioned by a local transportation consulting company is finding ways to provide transportation options for the first and last mile of people’s commute. For the full story, click here.
