While the vast majority of U.S. workers still uses a car to commute to work, there are differences across states.

Follow up:

The greenest commuters live in the District of Columbia, in New York and in Massachusetts, where 57%, 35% and 15% of commuters use public transportation, ride a bike or simply walk to their workplaces. On the opposite end of the scale, we find the southern states of Tennessee, Mississippi and Alabama, where more than 9 in 10 commuters use a car to get to work, while less than 1% of workers use public transportation.

This chart shows the 10 U.S. states with the highest percentage of workers who commute to work using "green" means of transportation.
