The U.S. Department of Transportation’s Federal Transit Administration (FTA) said Wednesday that more American’s are riding public transit now than last year.

According to the FTA, transit ridership is up more than 80 percent over early 2020 levels.

“That’s why FTA is facilitating a national conversation about ways transit agencies are attracting riders and growing new ridership,” said FTA Administrator Nuria Fernandez. “FTA’s America’s Open and Transit’s Open initiative is engaging our transit partners through listening sessions and a National Transit Renewal Summit to share best practices and work together to renew ridership across America.”
