According to the 2013 American Community Survey (published annually by the U.S. Census Bureau) more than 85% of U.S. workers aged 16+ commute to work by car, most of them alone.
Only 5.2% of workers use public transportation to get to work and the percentage of people who walk or ride a bike to work is astonishingly small at 2.8% and 0.6%, respectively.
Of course, there are areas where the percentage of “green commuters” is significantly higher, but the national average is surprisingly low.
This chart shows which means of transportation American workers used to commute to work in 2013.
