Driving Alone To Work

Thankfully, I walk to work because I live less than five blocks away from my office. However, when I lived further away in my first house in Boulder I drove alone to work.

Turns out, I’m not the only one.

More than 100 million Americans drive to work alone.


Recent Census data shows that in 2008 75.5% of workers drove to their jobs alone. The states who carpooled the least are Alabama, Tennessee and Ohio where about 83% of workers drove alone. Cities where public transportation is widespread – had the lowest rate of lone drivers; New York (53.7%) and D.C. (37.2%).

Do you drive alone? Is there anyway to carpool or take public transportation?
