Twelve Percent of USA Population Lives at Transit Friendly Densities

METRO - 2009-06-01 - Daily Kos logoK.S. LaVida’s post of June 1, 2009, at the DAILY KOS notes that a small portion of the population in the USA lives at densities that can begin to support transit,  ” . . . under 12% — only about 35 million people (out of over 300M) — live in ZIP codes with a density over 7000 per square mile.  In those sorts of places, mass transit lines are likely to be well-utilized.  About 44% live in areas with densities between 700 and 7000.  At the high end, that’s amenable to some mass transit, but for the most part it’s car country.  . . “
