The City aims to reduce vehicle miles traveled by promoting diverse transportation modes that are safe and low-cost, including walking, biking, and using mass transit.  As staff strives for connecting our City through the addition of complete streets, sidewalks, and bike paths, and increasing the availability of different transportation options, the City’s goal is to see a decrease in the percent of neighbors who commute to work alone, further reducing traffic congestion.

Data is collected from the American Community Survey (ACS) 1-Year Estimates – Data table: Commuting Characteristics by Sex. For further information about the American Community Survey (ACS) please see the Source tab. 

There are many external contributing factors affecting the projection to confidently determine an exact numerical target, therefore we have elected to set the target to ”decrease”. 

Due to the impact of COVID-19, the Census Bureau changed the 2020 American Survey System (ACS) release schedule to only release a limited number of data tables containing experimental estimates for the nation, states, and the District of Columbia. 

The data for this indicator is obtained from the American Community Survey 1-Year Estimates.  The American Community Survey (ACS) is administered by the United States Census Bureau. It is an ongoing survey that provides annual data used by communities, state governments, and federal programs to make decisions. The One-Year Estimate data provides 12 months of collected data from areas with populations over 65,000 and represents the most current available data.

There is an approximate one-year delay of the availability of ACS data.
