10 Best Cities for Public Transportation

10 Best Cities for Public Transportation

US News recently created a list of the 10 best cities in the United States for public transportation. Their criteria was based off of public transportation investment, ridership, and safety. The top ten cities were:

1.    Portland, OR

2.   Salt Lake City

3.   New York

4.   Boston

5.   Minneapolis-St. Paul, MN

6.   San Francisco

7.   Los Angeles

8.   Honolulu

9.   (tie) Denver

         (tie) Austin


This list was discussed in class and there was a lot of debate about the cities that showed up, and the ones that didn't. Specifically, people were surprised that Honolulu was on the list, and that Atlanta wasn't. Does anyone have any thoughts on whether you agree with this list and it's criteria used?
