Philadelphia’s Public Transit System Ranked Fifth In The Country
PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – From the El to Regional Rail and SEPTA’s more than 100 bus stations, public transit in Philadelphia is nothing to scoff at.
Now, new rankings from website WalkScore.com place the city as the fifth best in the country for public transportation.
WalkScore apparently calculated the “Transit Score” for 316 cities nearly 7,000 neighborhoods nationwide, and Philadelphia came out fifth.
New York was the city with the best public transportation and a score of 81, while San Francisco came in a close second with 80.
Boston and Washington, D.C. were third and fourth respectively.
Philadelphia, ranked fifth, earned a score of 67 – a “good” designation, and just three points below “excellent.”
Walk Score says older Northeast cities and cities on the West Coast had the best transit, while those in the South ranked the worst.
