We have all heard that getting around Los Angeles is difficult, and that Londoners endure long commutes compared to other UK cities, but how does public transportation across the world really stack up? What about micro-mobility usage like bikes and scooters?
Public transportation is the backbone of societal life in every city. It powers how residents commute to work, school, leisure, doctor’s appointments, and how tourists travel to attractions, tourist sites, and everything in between. Citizens need public transit and micro-mobility options to support their daily activities, but sometimes it can be challenging for local governments to grasp how transit is really consumed in their cities due to a lack of reports and insights that combine quantitative and qualitative data demonstrating the societal impact of local public transport.
After analyzing tens of millions of trip requests performed throughout 2019, combined with user research in 99 cities around the world, we are happy to be releasing our 2019 Global Public Transport Report. The report portrays a fascinating picture of how people commute in their cities using both public transportation and micro-mobility as we start 2020.
This report, which is based on big data, but also includes qualitative data such as reasons that would encourage people to use public transit or micro-mobility more often, can be a very beneficial tool for any city or transport agency looking for an accurate picture of the daily travel habits of their citizens in their cities.
Some highlights from the report include:
We are making the report accessible to anybody that would like to explore and compare metrics of cities and countries around the world. Click here to view the Global Public Transport Report.
