TransitCenter recently announced the launch of a new National Ridership Map that provides an easy way to "explore ridership trends in the country’s largest metropolitan areas."

The interactive map "uses American Community Survey (ACS) data and data from the Federal Transit Administration’s National Transit Database (NTD), which provides standardized ridership and operational data from all U.S. transit agencies" to illustrate the idea that "all ridership is local."
