What’s the most mass-transit intensive city in the U.S.? By the numbers, New York City. But for a glimpse of the real future of mass-transit, the winner is clearly Portland, Ore.!
Portland has only 632,000 residents, but 2.3 million in its metro area. Yet it has, per capita, what I think is the largest, most extensive and best integrated systems of light rail, streetcars and bike lanes in the nation.
