Well, Chicago was ranked No. 13 among "best cities for public transportation."
"The rankings take into account per capita spending on public transportation, number of safety incidents per million trips, and the number of trips taken per capita," reports U.S. News.
It was the safety category that dragged Chicago down. Washington, D.C. (tied for 11), Seattle (11) and Chicago (13) "had relatively high ridership and public investment, but they all also experienced far more safety incidents--such as collisions, derailments, and fires--per million trips than the cities in the top 10."
Here are the Top 10:
1. Portland, OR
3. New York
7. Los Angeles
9 (tie). Denver
9 (tie). Austin
