Public Transit Options

Public transportation offers a convenient and easy alternative to gridlocked commutes and high gas prices. Compared to driving, public transit is less expensive, safer and better for the environment. It also significantly reduces traffic congestion, saves energy and benefits the communities it serves. It’s the way millions of Americans commute to work every day. The use of public transportation is growing faster than both vehicle and airplane travel.

Public transportation is available in every county in Pennsylvania, with a wide range of services including:

  • Fixed-route transit service in Philadelphia, Pittsburgh, 21 small urban areas and 22 rural areas
  • 44 systems offering shared-ride services in all Pennsylvania counties
  • 13 intercity bus routes

  • 66 counties with rural transportation for persons with disabilities

The National Transit Database (NTD)

straight line

In the United States, transit ridership has grown by more than 20 percent in the last decade, reaching its highest levels since 1957. To keep track of the industry and provide public information and statistics as it continues to grow, FTA’s National Transit Database (NTD) records the financial, operating and asset condition of transit systems.

After data reporting was required by Congress in 1974, the NTD was set up to be the repository of data about the financial, operating and asset conditions of American transit systems. The NTD is designed to support local, state and regional planning efforts and help governments and other decision-makers make multi-year comparisons and perform trend analyses. It contains a wealth of information such as agency funding sources, inventories of vehicles and maintenance facilities, safety event reports, measures of transit service provided and consumed, and data on transit employees.
