The Intercity Bus: America’s Fastest Growing Transportation Mode: 2010 Update on Scheduled Bus Service (PDF)

Source:  Chaddick Institute for Metropolitan Development

Key Findings

1. For the third year in a row, intercity bus service was the fastest growing mode of intercity transportation, outpacing air and rail transportation.

2. Intercity bus operations expanded by 6.0% in 2010, showing that the sector’s renaissance continues.

3. “Curbside operators,” such as Boltbus and Megabus, expanded the number of departures by 23.9% and now account for more than 400 daily bus operations.

4. Megabus has reported ridership growth of 48% in cities served in both 2009 and 2010. Although data on other operators is not available, the curbside sector’s overall rate of growth appears to be at least 33%.

5. Passenger loads handled by curbside bus services are reducing fuel consumption by about 11 million gallons annually—the equivalent benefit of removing 23,818 vehicles from the road.
