According to a new survey released by the Portland Streetcar, the system is used primarily by residents of Portland to get to work.

According to the study the Portland Street car is “more than a tourist attraction or tool for economic development—it has become a critical piece of the city’s transportation system.”

The study was based a survey distributed to more than 4,300 riders in the spring of 2015 in order to determine where and why people use the streetcar, the demographics of users, fare payments and other information

The survey revealed that fewer than five percent of streetcar riders are tourists and that riders most frequently use the streetcar to travel to and from work each day. 

It also showed that 23 percent of riders do not have a driver's license and nearly 40 percent of riders come from households without a car. In addition, more than a quarter of riders make less than $20,000 a year.
