Public Transit Facts
56% of the population of New York City uses the public transportation system.
An individual can achieve an average annual savings of more than $9,900 by taking public transportation instead of driving and by living with one less car.
New York City buses do not accept paper money because NYC Transit uses giant vacuum hoses to empty fareboxes, a process that would shred bills.
