Tidbit Tuesday | How do Philadelphians in 2010 commute to work compared to those in 1960?

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 taking a look at how Philadelphians in 2010 commuted to work compared with those in 1960.tIDBITtUESDAY_COMMUTEOVERTIME-01

Our data is taken from the 1960, 1970, 1980, 1990, and 2000 Census, and the 2010 1-year American Community Survey.  It is important to note that in 1960, there was no “Bicycle, Taxi, Etc” category just an “Other and Unknown” category.  For the purposes of this graphic, that category was left out in 1960 as it did not directly align with our “Bicycle, Taxi, Etc” category.  In fact, if those counts that were “Unknown” were known, other transportation mode rates may have been higher.
