NOTES: Public transportation includes transit bus, transit rail, commuter rail, trolleys, and several demand-responsive services. According to the American Public Transportation Association (APTA), an unlinked transit trip is a trip on one transit vehicle. A person riding one vehicle from origin to destination takes one unlinked trip; a person who transfers to a second vehicle takes two unlinked trips; a person who transfers to a third vehicle takes three unlinked trips. A linked trip includes all segments on all vehicles used to travel from origin to destination. APTA estimates that the number of people riding transit on an average weekday is 45 percent of the number of unlinked transit passenger trips.
