TransitCenter announced the release of a new Transit Insights interactive tool that allows for comparisons of ridership figures between transit agencies.

According to the introduction transit ridership is often presented in the media a national trend. "[B]ut each transit agency has its own ridership story."

The new tool allows for more than ridership comparisons. Operations considerations like vehicle revenue miles, operating expenses, minimum headways, and average fares are also included. The user can also view neighborhood level demographic data for additional context.

More background on Transit Insights is also available in a blog post published on April 23 to promote the release of the new tool.
