With Americans taking nearly 10 billion trips on public transportation every year, the personal-finance website WalletHub today released its report on 2019's Cities with the Best & Worst Public Transportation, and Cleveland didn't rank as high as you may think.
Cleveland finished 46th overall out of 100 cities in the study, which compared them across 17 key metrics including share of commuters who use public transit and average age of the fleet to number of injuries and peak hours spent in congestion.
Cleveland did finish 18th in accessibility and convenience, but dead last in highest annual ticket prices.
Cleveland also finished behind Cincinnati (37th) and Toledo (39th), but ahead of Columbus (62nd) in the rankings.
The Best Cities, according to Wallethub, for Public Transportation are:
- Seattle, WA
- Boston, MA
- San Francisco, CA
- Washington D.C.
- Madison, WI
- Jersey City, NJ
- New York, NY
- Reno, NV
- Honolulu, HI
