The quality of public transit measures the statewide ranking of peer communities with the AllTransit™ performance score. The AllTransit™ Performance Score is a comprehensive score that looks at connectivity, access to land area and jobs, frequency of service, and the percent of commuters who use transit to travel to work.
Many people consider public transportation to be a significant quality of life factor in urban communities. Having access to public transportation is important to many working people, especially those without alternative means of transportation. Tucson, Tempe, and Phoenix have recently expanded public transportation options and have made substantial investments in redevelopment in their central, urban cores.
This metric is updated annually and is available for the following localities:
- U.S. Cities
- Metropolitan Planning Organizations (MPOs)
- Municipal Statistical Areas (MSAs)
