Indiana public transit not booming like other cities

Updated:
INDIANAPOLIS -

Indiana cities aren't experiencing the same public transit boom that saw Americans using public buses, trains and subways in greater numbers in 2013 than at any time in more than 50 years.
 
The American Public Transportation Association report found that number of people using public buses in Fort Wayne was down 3.6 percent last year, down 1.1 percent in Muncie and that ridership on northern Indiana's South Shore commuter railroad was down 1.6 percent.
 
Indianapolis was the only city of the Indiana systems included in the report where the number of people using the public bus system increased last year, reporting a 2.75 percent increase.
