If you feel your commute is a little more crowded, it's not your imagination.
A new report shows public transit ridership is up across the country.
The American Public Transportation Association says nearly 10.7 billion mass transit trips were taken across the U.S. last year, the highest total since 1956.
It was the eighth straight year ridership around the country topped the 10 billion mark.
The advocacy group says the expansion of bus and train networks help spur the growth, along with the restoration of services that were cut during the economic crisis.
Here in the city, the MTA reported a 3.6 percent jump in ridership in 2013, and New Jersey Transit posted a 1.5 percent increase.
