Transit Passenger Trips

This measure represents the annual number of passengers boarding on transit vehicles. A trip is counted each time a passenger boards a transit vehicle. Thus, if a passenger must transfer between buses to reach a destination, the passenger is counted as making two passenger trips.

Starting in 2014, statewide transit passenger trips have been declining. Passenger trips in 2019 marginally decreased from 2018. In 2019, 217.6 million passenger trips were served on transit in Florida.
