OVERVIEW | TRANSIT

Transit includes buses, light-rail, ferries and many other types of shared public transportation. Across the United States, new transit systems are being built to aid mobility, reduce congestion and spark economic activity. These system expansions, changing travel patterns and higher gas prices are leading to more transit use. Since 1995, transit ridership has increased from just below 8 billion trips to 10.5 billion in  2012. State legislatures are taking a larger role in helping plan, fund and develop transit systems, as well as shaping complementary land-uses to encourage access to transit. Transit issues covered by NCSL include transit funding, transit-oriented development and human services transportation coordination.
