This database includes the number of U.S. aircraft, vehicles, vessels and other conveyances, such as transit, rail, and water vehicles. Note that the U.S. DOT used a new methodology for categories from 2007-2015.  As a result, data for these years are not comparable to previous years. The new category Light duty vehicle, short wheel base replaces the old category Passenger car and includes passenger cars, light trucks, vans and sport utility vehicles with a wheelbase (WB) equal to or less than 121 inches. The new category Light duty vehicle, long wheel base replaces Other 2-axle, 4-tire vehicle and includes large passenger cars, vans, pickup trucks, and sport/utility vehicles with wheelbases (WB) larger than 121 inches.  For additional details, see the Bureau of Transportation Statistics
