How Do New Yorkers Get Around the City?


Commuters Mode of Transportation

How do most New York City residents get to work? Not by driving themselves!

Data from the American Community Survey in 2005-07 shows that as little 7% of trips to work are in single occupant vehicles in Manhattan. Three times as more people walk to work. Unsurprisingly, the mode with the largest share is the subway with 35-45% of trips.

(Staten Island was omitted because well… it’s Staten Island)
