In transit: Public transportation expansion projects will boost industry growth

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, growth is forecast to improve as more public transit expansion programs are put in place.

Public transportation agencies primarily operate regional passenger transportation systems with regular routes and fixed schedules. The industry does not include taxi and limousines (IBISWorld report 48533), charter buses (48551), 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.
