More Public Transit not the solution

In this blog, and in my now defunct Transportation Infrastructure blog, I often commented on public calls for more public transportation to solve the growing traffic congestion. The problem is people are not using public transportation, and the decline continues. In Sacramento the Regional Transit is reducing bus services, do to the lack of riders and raised fares as operating costs increase. The Gold County Stage is also struggling.

In doing some research on declining transit ridership for a regional magazine, I came across this Census Journey to Work chart. It tells the story!
