"The American Public Transportation Association’s figures show that the number of journeys in the country as a whole has fallen in each of the past three years. ...Public transport is holding up better in other rich countries, but not by much. In Toronto, adult trips have fallen every year since 2014 (the city made public transport free for young children, so their numbers are up). In London, bus journeys are down by 5% since the 2014-15 fiscal year. ... In almost every city in the rich world, the fiercest competition for public transport comes not from Uber, cycling or the appeal of working from one’s back garden. Rather, it comes from driving."
