Students rank transportation preferences
LOS ANGELES – (INT) – College students in Southern California would rather not drive, but the current transportation alternatives fall short of meeting their needs.
That’s the upshot of a mobility survey conducted the past six months by Metrolink.
Sixty nine percent said their personal vehicle best met their needs followed by Uber and Lyft (44 percent).
Public transit and carpooling ranked high for only about a third of students. However, 68 percent of students said they prefer not driving alone, and 90 percent of those who took the survey said they would consider using public transit instead of driving if it were reliable, affordable, convenient, and safe.
