On September 17, 2015, the U.S. Census Bureau announced the release of the 2014 American Community Survey (ACS) 1-Year estimates. The ACS is the most relied-on annual source for up-to-date social, economic, and housing information, including journey to work data.
Best Workplaces for Commuters (located at the Center for Urban Transportation Research at the University of South Florida) used the data to compile the following summaries of commuter related information by over 360 metropolitan statistical areas (MSAs)The ACS 1-year estimates are available for the nation, all 50 states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, every congressional district, every metropolitan area, and all counties and places with populations of 65,000 or more.
Best Workplaces for Commuters produced the following data tables to address the following questions. Click on the corresponding link for the table.

- How does our MSA rank based on the rate of non-drivers (i.e., carpool passengers, transit riders, bicyclists, workers who walk to work, and/or work at home)? Table 2 Ranking of MSAs by Share of Non-Drivers per 100 Workers (ver 2 – updated 9-18-15)
- What does the distribution of travel times to work look like for our largest metro areas? Table 3 – Travel Time to Work Distribution by MSAs with 1 Million or More Commuters
- What does the distribution of travel times to work look like for our medium-sized metro areas?Table 4 – Travel Time to Work Distribution by MSAs with 500k to 1 Million Commuters
