Portland Leads the Nation in Public Transportation

Portland is a highly ranked city for many things.  Portland is considered the countries Greenest city, the mostPet-Friendly, to have the best long-term value in real estate and one of my favorites, has the countries besthappy hour scene.

Well, now there is another to add to that list.  Researchers at U.S. News completed a study using  data from the Federal Transit Administration and APTA  to show which cities are among the best in the country for public transportation.

The cities were ranked on a combination of things, including money spent on the system, ridership and safety.  Portland came out on top in their analysis.
