  • -42% of participants used green transportation for shopping, errands, or social visits today in addition to commuting to/from work.-Participants who commuted by car were the least likely to used green transportation for other activities.
  • Of the top ten employers with the most participants, all but Harvard University – Staff and the City of Cambridge used some form of Public Transit as top mode of transportation. (The most popular mode for Harvard Staff is biking. The most popular mode for City of Cambridge was walking)
  • -While it makes sense that those who telecommute would have the greatest average commuting distance, it is quite surprising that automobile users had one of the shortest average commuting distances (4.1 miles) – second only to walking (3.2 miles).
