City Vacations = More Public Transit Riders

02-Jun-2011

The APTA newsletter reports that although beaches, camping, cruises and parks are great, city vacations continue to top the list of summer travel destinations for most Americans. According to the American Public Transportation Association's (APTA) Green Travel Forecast, the association's annual travel survey, “54 percent of summer vacationers heading to urban destinations will use the local public transportation system to get around during their stay. In addition, 65 percent say public transportation played a role in their destination choice.” The Green Travel Forecast is the only nationwide visitor survey that gauges how travelers will get around once they reach their city destination. The current study results mark the highest number recorded in the four-year history of the Green Travel Forecast, up six percentage points from the initial survey in 2007.
