Ticket To Ride: Americans Prefer Public Transit: "According to the research from HNTB Corporation, 76 percent of Americans are open to taking public transportation instead of driving, up from 69 percent in 2010.
High gas prices would drive the decision for 41 percent of those who choose public transportation over driving. In fact, 54 percent think getting around on public transportation for a year would save them more money than doing so via a car.
More than 9 in 10, however, believe the nation’s public transportation needs to be improved in some way. Many public transit agencies are exploring various ideas, including the introduction or expansion of bus rapid transit (BRT) facilities."
