Public transportation creates opportunities for employment, education, recreation, shopping, social activities, community involvement, and cultural activities for a region’s population. For many, public transit is an amenity used on occasion; however, for those with limited transportation means, public transportation may be a necessity. Public transit contributes to the economic health of a region and is a fundamental element of an enhanced quality of life. It is also a means to reduce traffic congestion and improve a region’s air quality.
