In big cities, public transportation is an essential method of getting around, and the Walk Score Transit Rating gives commuters some insight into which urban centers are at the top of the heap when it comes to carting around their residents. The website previously compiled a listing of the most foot-peddling friendly cities in America and has recently extended its rating system to include city-run transit to its database.
Ranking the largest 25 cities in the United States, Walk Score has determined that New York City is the top location for public transport-using commuters and Raleigh, NC, brings up the rear in last place. Las Vegas scored low on the scale, which is surprising given the vast amount of tourists that frequent the city of sin. The ratings are determined by comparing how useful the transit routes are in each city.
