Transit and ground passenger transportation revenue in the U.S. 2010-2022 Over the years the US government has made significant investments to develop a comprehensive land transport network, with the 45,000 mile Interstate system connecting most of the cities with a population of 50,000 or more. This robust and efficient infrastructure is one of the primary drivers of the country’s transit and ground passenger transportation market, with revenues expected to grow steadily over the short term. There were approximately 530,000 interstate motor carriers throughout the United States in 2017.

MTA New York City is the largest public transport agency

Metropolitan Transportation Authority in New York is by far the market leader based on unlinked passenger trips in the US, followed by the agencies in Chicago, Los Angeles and Washington. It has however, gotten a lot of flak over the past year because of the infrastructure, delays, and costs of upkeeping a transit system for the city that never sleeps.

Bus registrations on the rise

Buses are probably the most integral part of the transit and ground passenger transportation industry. The total number of buses used for transportation in the U.S. stood at 65,000 in 2017, with registrations increasing every year. California had the highest number of registrations in 2017, followed by New York, Texas, Florida and Pennsylvania.
