Tidbit Tuesday — Who commutes to work by public transit?

Every Tuesday, the Mayor’s Office of Transportation & Utilities (MOTU) posts a map or graphic that tells a story about transportation or utilities in the City of Brotherly Love.   This week is the second in a 3-part series exploring how people commute to work — see last week post about who commutes by car, truck, or van here. This week we will be taking a look at where people live if they are commuting by public transit.

PubTransCommute

According to the 2007-2011 American Community Survey, 26% of Philadelphians commute to work by public transit.  While this may be the average, there are many communities in Philadelphia, as can be seen by the above map (which is broken down by to the block group level and overlaid with Philadelphia’s Planning Districts), where average public transit commute rates are much higher or lower than this 26% average.

Keep Your Head Up, Keep Safe

This neat PSA will be posted on the ceilings of transit stations to remind pedestrians to be safe.

Tidbit Tuesday — Who commutes to work by car?

Every Tuesday, the Mayor’s Office of Transportation & Utilities (MOTU) posts a map or graphic that tells a story about transportation or utilities in the City of Brotherly Love.   This week we are beginning a 3-part series exploring how people commute to work.
