Not everyone can own a car, and in some parts of the country it’s actually cheaper (and sometimes easier) to use public transport instead of a personal vehicle. Many cities are offering better and more accessible public transport as it becomes a necessity, especially in communities created for residents who don’t drive.
Public transportation is a multi-billion-dollar industry, one that employs over 400,000 people nationally. Over the United States, nearly 35 million people use public transit options every day, whether it’s for their daily commute or a trip across town. That’s an impressive number.
As more and more railways, subways, and bus routes are established, it’s becoming easier and easier to get where you need to go.
Most of the cities on this list have functioning public transport systems already in place, so there’s no need to wait for them to become useful. This list is also arranged by accessibility, so each city on this list has a high number of jobs within the area of transportation.
If you’re looking for a new city to settle down in, but don’t want to shell out money for a car, here are five locations with well-developed subway or rail systems in place.
If any of these cities are on your list of potential places to live, it might be worth your while to check out the public transport systems in your target area. Along with being environmentally friendly, public transport can be a cheap, affordable way to get around without the use of a car.
