NOTES: This table shows the status of connections between commuter rail and the various intercity and transit modes at 1,160 commuter rail stations. For each mode listed in the leftmost column, read across to see how many commuter rail stations fall into each of the four connecting status categories. "Connections" indicates the number of commuter rail stations where the mode listed is either in the commuter rail station, directly outside, or within one block. "Near connections" means the connecting mode is within 1-2 blocks or is in the commuter rail station but operates during hours that commuter rail does not. "No connection" means the mode shown serves the same town/city/ municipality as commuter rail, but does not serve the commuter rail station nor comes close enough to be considered a "near connection." "No service" shows the number of commuter rail stations where the other mode does not serve the same town/city/municipality as the commuter rail station.

Supplemental and Code Share buses that are in the database are not included in the totals in this table since they are not classified in the database as either intercity or transit.
