walkscoretransitIf you don’t want to own a car and would rather walk or ride public transportation, New York City will probably be your best bet.

walkscoretransit33Walk Score just released its newest rankings for America’s best cities for access to public transit. The top three cities — New York, San Francisco, Boston — actually are identical to Walk Score’s top three cities for walkability.

Seattle ranked seventh for access to public transit, while Portland came in tenth. Walk Score noted that cities in the Northeast scored high thanks to its well-established subway systems, and new light rail installments also helped West Coast cities.

The rankings, which include cities with populations over 500,000 people, are based on the average resident’s access to public transit in a metropolis. Here’s more about Walk Score’s methodology.
