ANALYSES

Going into more details, about a third of all cyclists indicated health and fitness as the primary for choosing this method of transportation while another third claimed it is for less pollution. On the other hand, the largest proportion of automobile users expressed comfort as their main reason for opting to drive while half as many expressed that it was due to their distance from the workplace at 40% and 21%, respectively. The remaining three reasons people bike to work are shared fairly equally, no parking problems (15%), no cost (13%), and faster than driving (12%). Similarly, the three remaining factors for driving to work are quite equal weighted, either have cargo or faster than cycling, both 14%, and safer than cycling at 11%.

SUMMARY

In summary, it is clear that there are quite different reasons for people to either bike or drive to work, and each of these represent a significant percentage of commuters.
