How Do We Commute?
National data on commute times don't show much movement since 2008, based on a report from the Pew Charitable Trusts.
In Connecticut, 78.6% of our workers drove alone to work in 2012, down just 0.1% from 78.7% in 2008.
For 2012, just 3.0% of workers commuted on foot, while 4.8% took transit. Biking to work doesn't even have its own category in this report, falling under "other" at 1.3%, unchanged since 2008.
One bright spot--the percentage of people who walk to work increased from 2.8% in 2008 to 3.0 percent in 2012.
Now those are some metrics to work on. Read more and see interactive 50-state map»
