NOTE: 2005 numbers used in this report differ from those in the June
2005 report because the facilities used for the 2005 analysis were revised to
include: (1) intercity ferry service across the entire United States (the
June 2005 report included only intercity ferry facilities that were part of
the Alaska Marine Highway System) and (2) only airports with scheduled
intercity passenger transportation (the June 2005 report included a few
airports with only commuter air service). Additionally, the method used for
determining coverage was revised in this report to more accurately compute
the coverage area and applied to the 2005 data.
