Transit and urban driving

Since 1994, transit grew by 35 percent while urban driving grew by 39 percent. Since 1984, transit grew by 21 percent while urban driving grew by more than 100 percent. Go back to 1974, and transit grew by 55 percent while urban driving grew by 190 percent. Overall, since 1970, transit grew faster than driving in about one out of three years. Even if transit were growing faster than driving in every year, driving has such a head start that it would take transit many decades if not centuries to catch up.

Thanks, this has been handy reference material. I'm happy to see with driving increases growing at more than pre 2005 levels that the economy again looks healthy.
