The Transformation of the American Commuter

The paper’s findings are based on recent research from the National Academy of Sciences, and new analysis by the American Public Transportation Association (APTA) Research and Policy Development Department, including the results of APTA’s 2018 Mobility Survey. For the survey, one thousand adults nationwide were polled on wide-ranging transportation topics, producing insightful results on the future of mobility. Polling questions were based on results from a qualitative focus group of millennial commuters. Three key findings are discussed in this report: (1) Seventy-Seven Percent of Americans Think Public Transit is the Backbone of a Multi-Transit Lifestyle; (2) Consumers Focused on Public Transportation, Supporting Bus Lanes and Additional Funding; and (3) Transit as Mobility Manager: 74 Percent of Millennials Would Use a Multi-Transit App.
