Chicago Ranks Highly For Public Transit

Commuters in Chicago that use public transportation have an easier time than most other cities, according to a new report.

The report out from real estate website Trulia compared commute departure and arrival times for households that use public transportation in order to determine the top 25 transit-friendly cities in America. Chicago came out number three, behind Portland and Atlanta. In fourth and fifth place were Boston and Houston, respectively. 

Chicago ranked highly because of its short overall commute times, reasonable departure time and a small increase in the total number of commuters between 2010 and 2014.
