What is this Indicator?  This indicator shows the percentage of all workers age 16 years and over who commute to work using public transit. 
Why this is important?  Transit can help bridge the spatial divide between people and jobs, services, and training opportunities. Public transportation is also beneficial because it reduces fuel consumption, minimizes air pollution, and relieves traffic congestion.
Technical Note:  According to the 2010 Census, 2.1% of Ohioans over 16 used transit for work-related trips.  In 2009, less than .08% of Allen County residents over the age of 16 used transit for work trips, while the mean is 1.05%.
