Wendell Cox's Weird Arithmetic

From the Cabalmaster:

RE: Wendell Cox’s Faulty Arithmetic

In his recent commentary on the National Review website , Wendell Cox apparently is incapable of doing simple arithmetic.

According to the Federal Transit Administration (FTA) the
http://National Transit Database, public transportation in the United States carried about 9.6 billion trips in 2000. This calculates out to 34 annual trips per capita for the 283 million residents of the United States, a 3% market share if trips are considered, rather than the somewhat misleading passenger mile measure favored by Cox.
