What is the relative fuel efficiency of transit options in Chicago? We are used to seeing miles per gallon for cars and trucks but buses, trains and other mass transit carry lots of people and must be more efficient. How is this tracked? Is it energy per person's mile traveled? And what about relative to cost (per ride, total capital and maintenance costs, etc..).\ \ Just wondering..
