Change in commuting habits

Here is a document that shows how the commute to work is changing.

The way people are getting around is changing even if slowly.  I believe that complete streets has a roll in this.

From 2010 to 2012 commuters in Rochester performed as follows:

  • A lower percentage drove alone
  • A higher percentage carpooled
  • A higher percentage rode transit
  • A higher percentage walked
  • A higher percentage biked
  • A higher percentage worked from home

Our goal is to get single occupant trips downtown to 50% in a generation.
