2016 Public Transportation Fact Book

The Public Transportation Fact Book, published annually, contains national aggregate statistical data covering all aspects of the transit industry in the United States. Major sections include an overview of U.S. transit facts, transit finances and operating statistics, transit vehicle characteristics and infrastructure, facts and numbers relating to energy and the environment, employees, modal data, and a Canadian transit data summary. Data in the Fact Book are statistical expansions of sample data and represent the total activity of all transit agencies. Base data are taken from the Federal Transit Administration's National Transit Database (NTD). These data are supplemented by data from other sources including state departments of transportation and American Public Transportation Association (APTA) surveys of APTA transit system members. Data for Canada were provided by the Canadian Urban Transit Association (CUTA).
