NBA arenas with best and worst transit scores
TD Garden, Capital One Arena and Barclays Center are among the NBA arenas with perfect transit scores, according to a new ranking.
What's happening: Walk Score, a Redfin company that promotes walkable neighborhoods, measured how well NBA arenas are served by public transportation.
- The company assigns a "usefulness" value to the nearby transit routes on frequency, type and distance between stops.
- A transit score of 90–100 means public transportation near the arena is world class; 70–89 scores have convenient transportation options for most trips; 50–69 scores have many nearby public transit options; 25–49 scores have few nearby public transportation options; 0–24 scores mean it is possible to get on a bus.
By the numbers: There are four cities with NBA arenas that have a transit score of 100 according to Walk Score.
- Paycom Center, FedExForum and Frost Bank Center rank the lowest.
Be smart: There are 30 NBA teams and 29 arenas — the Los Angeles Lakers and the Clippers play in the same arena.
Editor's note: This story was corrected to say there are four cities with NBA arenas that have a score of 100, not five.
