TRB's Transit Cooperative Research Program (TCRP) has released a pre-publication, non-edited version of Research Report 201: Understanding Changes in Demographics, Preferences, and Markets for Public Transportation. The report explores how changes in demographics, traveler preferences, and markets for public transportation affect transit ridership now and in the future. The report explores how an individual’s demographics affect their longterm values, their current attitudes, and the type of neighborhood they choose to live in. Each of these factors also affects their likelihood to ride transit.
