Public Transit For a Month
"On any given weekday, 5.3 million people crowd into the subway system, 300,514 take the Long Island Rail Road, 284,593 ride Metro-North and 275,850 take NJ Transit trains. Still others opt for boats, trams, cars and buses."
"To explore this phenomenon, we are embarking on a mission. For the month of January, we will ride to and from work with some of the New York area's commuting millions. And every day, we'll post an account of a particular trip online and tell you what it looks and feels like, who makes that commute and why, where they live and why."
