The top 10 cities for public transportation
Nobody likes sitting in traffic. Many cities' most viable alternatives to driving or biking places involve utilizing their public transit infrastructure — anything from buses and trains to subways and light rails. While not every city has a optimal public transit system in place, there are several cities whose systems stand out.
Financial strategy company SmartAsset analyzed data for cities with over 175,000 residents from the U.S. Census Bureau’s 2014 American Communities Survey to determine which cities had the best public transit systems. Above are the top 10 cities with the best public transportation, along with ridership and transportation data as gathered by SmartAsset.
