Chicago ranks sixth in the United States when it comes to public transit.

The website Walk Score studied how easy it is to get around without a car in cities nationwide. New York, San Francisco, Boston, Washington and Philadelphia rank higher than Chicago.

Researchers say there are signs that people between 16 and 34 years old are leading the trend toward driving less.
