Tidbit Tuesday | Percentage of each Philadelphia commuter mode that leaves for work between 7am-8am & 8am-9am

On Tuesdays, 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 took American Community Survey data (2008 – 2012 5-year estimate) and graphed how different modes in Philadelphia leave for work at different times.  Please note that all percentages are rounded to the nearest whole number.  As can be seen in the graph below, 27% of those who commute by driving alone or by carpooling leave between 7am and 8am.  28% of those who walk to work leave between 8am – 9am.  What time do you leave for work?
