Transport Databook

In order to improve availability of transportation-related data, The Transport Politic provides interactive charts and tables, updated as frequently as possible, with data documenting trends in U.S. related to travel. Sources and date of last update are noted for each; these are provided below.

In addition, The Transport Politic’s Transit Explorer 2 database, available in interactive form, is also available for download for use on programs just as ArcGIS and QGIS. This download is $25 and includes the most extensive existing database of transit stations and lines throughout North America, in operation, under construction, and planned.
