Why is this important?

Public transportation offers mobility to U.S. residents, particularly people without cars. Transit can help bridge the spatial divide between people and jobs, services, and training opportunities. Public transportation is also beneficial because it reduces fuel consumption, minimizes air pollution, and relieves traffic congestion.
The Healthy People 2020 national health target is to increase the proportion of workers who take public transportation to work to 5.5%.
