According to a recent survey done by consultants from the Comunidad de Madrid 73% of the 2,370,884 inhabitants of Quito rely on public transportation on a daily basis.
This is a good thing that will hopefully continue, due to the long, thin valley that Quito sits in, the traffic often gets horribly bottle-necked, especially during peak hours.
It’s also important to note that with all the inexpensive taxis and buses around, Quito, as well as Ecuador in general, is a place where you really DON’T need a car. A big plus indeed for many considering a move here.
