In transit: Falling unemployment rates and continued government support will benefit industry operators



Public Transportation in the US

In the past five years, demand for public transportation has been driven by rising fuel costs and more Americans moving away from rural areas into urban centers, forcing many people to switch from commuting with their cars to cheaper public transportation. Additionally, higher government funding has allowed for the expansion of energy-efficient transportation services. Over the next five years, industry growth will be driven by a couple factors, including continued increases in government funding for transportation and a rise in domestic trips taken by US residents. These trends will ultimately lead to a rise in ridership, helping to increase fare-generated revenue for industry operators.

Public transportation agencies primarily operate regional passenger transportation systems with regular routes and fixed schedules. The industry does not include taxis and limousines (IBISWorld report 48533), charter buses (48522), ferry boats (48311) or school and employee buses (48541).

This report covers the scope, size, disposition and growth of the industry including the key sensitivities and success factors. Also included are five year industry forecasts, growth rates and an analysis of the industry key players and their market shares.
