WE WANT TO KNOW: Do you walk or bike to work?


Published:   |   Updated: May 11, 2014 at 09:18 AM

Sixty percent more people biked or walked to work in the last decade.

The U.S. Census said 488,000 pedaled or plodded in 2000, but 786,000 took the mode less traveled in the past six years.

In Ithaca, N.Y., home of Cornell and four other colleges, 42 percent walked. It’s no surprise that Southerners had the lowest rate, 1.8 percent.

Do you bike or walk to work? Did you give it up? Would you, if conditions were different?
