Based on the standard grade scale, no city earned better than a C+. The top-performing system per the study is in Seattle, which got a score of 77.97. Each city also received a ranking based on the submeasures, and in this case, Seattle was only seventh for accessibility and convenience, sixth for safety and reliability and third for public transit resources.

The other four top cities were Boston, San Francisco, Washington and Madison, Wisconsin. Each scored at least 71 points in the rankings. Outside of the top five, cities fell under 70 points with the worst of the 100 cities scoring a mere 24.69 points or fewer. The bottom three cities (Tampa, Florida; St. Petersburg, Florida; and Indianapolis) scored 24.69, 24.03 and 21.13, respectively. That's not a great look for a big city like Indianapolis, especially considering a single category alone was worth a max of 20 points.

For example, Lincoln, Nebraska, residents have the shortest public transit times, while Riverside, California, residents will wait the longest on average. Additionally, those living in Chandler, Arizona, will pay the least amount to ride public transit, and residents of Buffalo, New York, pay the most, based on median household income.

As a whole, the US has hardly ever emphasized public transportation outside of the largest cities in the country. With automakers and companies pursuing automation and other associated technologies, that could change in the distant future.
