Bay Area Transit Ridership Continues to Climb
Soaring gas prices, clogged freeways and a job-rich ecoomy have driven more Americans than ever to swap their car keys for metro cards.
Public transportation increased nearly 3 percent throughout the first three quarters of 2006, raising the total number of trips people took via commuter rail, subway, bus and light rail to 7.8 billion, accrding to the American Public Transportation Association.
That's much greater than the 7.1 billion trips taken at the tail-end of the dot-com boom.
