Percentage of Region’s Commuters Driving Alone Declines

More people in the metropolitan Washington region are taking transit to work or teleworking than at any point in the past 10 years, according to findings of the Commuter Connections program sponsored by the Metropolitan Washington Council of Governments (MWCOG).
 
According to the 2010 “State of the Commute” survey, since 2001 the number of workers in the region driving alone to work has declined from 70 percent to 64 percent, while the those who use transit and telework at least one day a week has risen to 21 percent (from 17 percent) and six percent (from three percent) respectively.
 
For more information on the survey, see the report (pdf) on MWCOG’s website. For information on alternative transportation in Montgomery County, visit the Commuter Services’ program website or call 240-773-2989.
