APTA 2018 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, passenger travel, transit safety, transit finances and operating statistics, transit vehicle characteristics and infrastructure, facts 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), APTA’s 2017 Public Transportation Vehicle Database, and 2016 Infrastructure Database (these are based off of surveys of APTA transit system members). Data for Canada are provided by the Canadian Urban Transit Association (CUTA).
