Governing compiled 2011 American Community Survey data on commuting habits for more than 300 metropolitan statistical areas. Click a marker to display percentages of commuters using each mode of transportation.
Larger icons represent areas with higher shares of commuters taking public transportation to work. The Census Bureau's survey recorded a single transportation type for a person's longest distance traveled, so workers riding bikes to subways typically count only as public transportation commuters.
