Abstract

This report presents information on why people do not us transit in large numbers in both the United States and the State of Florida. The report contains demographics of the non-user public according to age, gender, automobile ownership, income, and ethnicity. In addition, it contains a synthesis of Florida Transit Surveys, an examination of most appropriate questions and methodologies for data gathering and suggestions about how to improve overall transit service and to attract choice non-users to public transit.
