Curious about how your daily commute compares to other urbanites’? So were we. So we delved into the Census’ 5-year ACS data to show you how and by what mode of transport folks in urban metros are getting to work.
We’ll be pitting metro against metro in a weekly five-part urban commuting series to see which ones have the highest percentage of commuters taking public transit, driving, walking and biking.
In the latest installment of the Urban Commuting Series we take a look at those riding public transit. No matter which transit system you claim as your own (BART, MBTA, NYC Subway, Metro, PortAuthority) we’ve listed the metro areas with the highest percentage of people who commute by public transit. Check out each of the top 5 metro area maps and explore the percentage of public transit takers by zip code.
