2015 Commuting Data for MSAs

On September 15, 2016, the U.S. Census Bureau released the American Community Survey statistics for 2015.  The data includes journey to work data for populations over 65,000.  Best Workplaces for Commuters has compiled this 2015 journey to work data (see modes below) for 234 metropolitan statistical areas (MSAs) and compared these estimates to the 2014 estimates.  We also noted whether the mode estimates are statistically different between 2014 and 2015. Download the mode split tables for MSAs (176 pages).  There are two sets of tallies: estimates and mode shares.
