NOTES: Passenger car does not include motorcycle data. Transit includes travel by motor bus, heavy rail, commuter rail, light rail, ferry boat, trolley bus, demand response, and other transit vehicles. Bus comprises all travel by bus including intercity, transit, and school bus. This results in some double counting of bus passenger-miles of travel (pmt). For consistency, air pmt includes air carrier aviation only, as general aviation pmt 2002 data were not available at the time this report was prepared. The data presented here may not be consistent with other sources, particularly data that are revised on an irregular or frequent basis.
