Compare that with No. 1 New York, where 30.5 percent of workers travel to their workplaces by bus, subway or train.
San Francisco-Oakland is a distant second at 14.6 percent. Usage of public transit exceeds 10 percent in just five other markets — Washington, Boston, Chicago and two micropolitan areas in Florida: Arcadia and Clewiston.
