 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 and Canada. Two appendices, also available below, provide additional in-depth information that supplements the data in the Fact Book.

For more information, contact John Neff, Senior Policy Researcher, at jneff@apta.com, or Matthew Dickens, Policy Analyst, at mdickens@apta.com.

2013 Fact Book

Major sections include an overview of U.S. transit facts, transit finances and operating statistics by modes of travel, transit vehicle characteristics and deliveries, facts and numbers relating to federal grants and the Federal Transit Act, and statistical trends of Canadian transit operations.

Information in the 2013 Fact Book is based on data from the FTA's National Transit Database for 2011.

Appendices

Appendix A: Historical Tables

Appendix A presents select data items for the entire time period they have been reported in the Fact Book and other statistical reports prepared by APTA and its predecessor organizations. Many data items are reported for every year beginning in the 1920s, and ridership is reported from 1907.

Appendix B: Transit Agency and Urbanized Area Operating Statistics

Appendix B presents six operating statistics for 2011 for each transit agency in size order, totaled for all service modes operated by the agency and in size order for each individual mode. Data are also summed and ranked for urbanized areas, both all modes totaled and for individual modes. These lists allow a simple method to determine comparably sized transit agencies.

Data for Appendix B are taken from the Federal Transit Administration's National Transit Database (NTD) and include only agencies reporting to the NTD.

Rural Transit Fact Book

The Small Urban and Rural Transit Center (SURTC) produces a yearly Rural Transit Fact Book with charts and analysis using the NTD Rural Data.  This publication is not produced by APTA.
