The report was prepared for the American Public Transportation Association (APTA) by CJI Research Corporation and uses data from 695,748 passenger questionnaires completed from 2008 to 2015, making it the most extensive public transit report in terms of demographics in the United States. The survey data includes a total of 211 reports on systems that carried a total of more than eight billion unlinked passenger trips. The majority of the surveys were paper-based with only one major survey in a large urban area conducted on a tablet and another major household survey conducted by telephone.
