How Does Your City’s Subway Stack Up To Others?
A newly devised 'transit score' gives cities a meaningful way to compete
Many cities claim to have better transit than others, and some get an undeservedly bad rap. As cities around the world continue to vie for the status of the next hip, sustainable, car-independent place to live, wouldn’t it be nice to know the truth behind the hype? The nonprofit research institutes Center for Neighborhood Technology and TransitCenter Center for Neighborhood Technology have come together to create an impartial metric called the AllTransit Performance Score that precisely and transparently monitors various factors that go into the transit-friendliness of a given area.
