It also lists project status, mileage, and opening dates of future rail projects.
The report is available in CD-ROM format or electronically. To obtain a copy of this report, click here. APTA members can download free from the online bookstore. The CD-ROM costs $15 for APTA members or $30 for non-members.
Two other APTA statistical publications are also available for purchase:
* The 2008 Public Transportation Fare Database report lists major elements of fare structures by mode for 250 or more U.S. transit agencies and 15 Canadian transit agencies, covering fixed route adult base fares, surcharges, common fare payment options, special categorized passenger fares, and demand response (or paratransit) passenger fares. The 2009 report will be published in October.
* The 2008 Public Transportation Vehicle Database report examines revenue vehicles by such fleet characteristics as data of manufacture, manufacturer, model, length, and equipment, representing about 250 U.S. transit agencies and 15 Canadian transit agencies. The report includes summary tables that group vehicles by mode and list by manufacturer, size, year built, and equipment, as well as a special section on the new vehicle market with orders, planned orders, prior year deliveries, and vehicle costs. This 2009 report will be published in June.
