Tidbit Tuesday | Philadelphia 2nd in Non-Car Commuter Percentages of Top 10 Most Populous Cities in America

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 a look at American Community Survey 2012 1-year estimate data of the top 10 most populous cities in America (you can pull the data yourself from American Factfinder here).  We decided to graph the car vs. non-car breakdowns between these top cities.  Philadelphia has the second highest non-car commuter percentages of these selected cities behind New York City (just barely edging out Chicago).  Do any of these surprise you?
