78 Million Americans Plan to use Public Transportation this Summer

At Xpress, we love our riders and work to get them to and from work safely. We were excited to find out 78 million Americans plan to use public transportation this summer by a survey conducted by the American Public Transportation Association (APTA). Even with record low gas prices this summer, Americans would rather ride public transit than drive their cars.

APTA’s annual Travel Like a Local summer survey shows that public transportation continues to be an integral part of vacation planning for city travelers.  Continuing the trend in recent years, millennial and young adults aged 18-44 are the most likely (67 percent) to use public transit during their vacation to a major U.S. city this summer.

Spread the word this summer about the convenience of riding Xpress to and from work.  Read more on APTA annual survey.
