infoDefinitions

Disaggregating the mode of travel to Carpool and/or Public Transportation requires an understanding of how this measure is calculated. This measure calculates the mode of travel that the worker usually used to get from home to work during the reference week. People who used different means of transportation on different days of the week were asked to specify the one they used most often. People who used more than one means of transportation to get to work each day were asked to report the one used for the longest distance during the work trip. This measure shows that in 2019, 15.0% of workers used carpool and/or public transportation more often than driving alone in a single-occupancy vehicle.
