Baltimore is 7th in Public Transportation

Published by at 1:16 pm under Downtown,Public Transportation,Resources

A common opinion among Baltimoreans is that our public transportation is horribly lacking.? Which is why I’m as surprised as you probably are to read? in a? CNN Money article that Baltimore ranks 7th among all US cities in? percentage of residents commute to work on buses, trains and light rail – 48,252, or 18.9%.? That’s pretty impressive.?

Baltimore trails other much larger cities known for their public transportation – New York, Washington, San Fransisco, Boston, Philly, and Chicago.? But surprisingly leads cities such as Seattle, Oakland, and Portland.? I wonder if the study is including all the people who take trains from Baltimore city or BWI into DC.? Perhaps that is skewing the number.? But hey – once we the proposed Red Line metro addition and downtown trolley are in place, we may just jump up a couple spots.

    I thought the article showed Baltimore as being 7th behind Chicago.

    Yes but 5th has a nicer ring to it. 5th was a typo – that kind of day.

    I wish we were fifth :) then I could actually use it. I bet if you look short and quick, you will find a dozen typo’s on my blog so don’t sweat it.
