Survey: more summer travelers using transit

Posted on May 19, 2008

  

According to an American Public Transportation Association (APTA) survey, 35 percent of vacationers said they will use public transit, representing a seven percent increase from APTA’s 2007 “Green Travel Forecast Survey.”

 

The proportion of urban visitors this summer that will use public transportation is as high as 53 percent – a five percent increase – in New York City, the nation’s top destination for transit use by visitors. Almost all major city destinations are projected to see transit use by vacationers increase this summer.

 

 

For the first time, this survey of 68,400 adults shows a growing trend of travelers using public transit this summer once they arrive at their destination. Synovate, a leading market research firm, conducted the survey for APTA.

 

To assist travelers, APTA is providing specific information on day and visitor passes, trip planners, transit maps and directions for cities across the country. Visit www.publictransportation.org.
