Commuters’ Mode of Travel

Description: 

People in Arizona remain very dependent on the automobile. The majority of workers travel alone in their car to work. Alternate forms of transportation include carpooling, public transit, and other modes of transportation such as taxicabs, motorcycles, bicycles, and walking. People who work from home are also included in these data.

Healthy, sustainable communities are those that provide a variety of options for residents, such as access to multiple types of transportation. Increasing transportation options also improves accessibility to jobs, decreases transportation costs for workers, and helps to build an improved sense of community. When people shift to alternate modes of transportation, reduced automotive emissions can result in improvements to the local air quality.
