Chart of the Day: Airport Travel Time for US Cities, Transit vs. Cabs

Here’s a chart from Doug Mack’s Twitter feed and FiveThirtyEight (thanks Jeb!):


The yellow is the drive time  from the airport to downtown (with a 10-minute wait, which makes all the difference) and the blue is the transit time. It’s rare to see Minneapolis at the top of a list, and this one is actually pretty cool! Check out some of the disaster airport travel times at the bottom.

Anyway, good job Blue Line!

PS. I’m not sure where this chart came from. If anyone can send a link, I’ll add it.
