Public transportation not on trips includes public transportation not taken as part of a trip or vacation. A trip or vacation includes trips to visit relatives or friends, business trips, recreational trips, other trips overnight or longer, and day trips of at least 75 miles away from home. Local transportation includes intracity mass transit and local for-hire taxicabs and ride-hailing services. Amounts are calculated by the Bureau of Transportation Statistics using public-use microdata and may differ slightly from amounts calculated using original data.
