Percent of Persons Living in Minneapolis Driving Alone to Work Year Estimate
Target is 61%/Margin of Error is +/- 3.1% Source: Public Works
Why is this measure important?
Using transportation other than driving is good for our health, budgets and environment. Alternative transportation options include taking the bus or train, carpooling, bicycling and walking. The City plays an important role in making transit affordable and convenient, creating dynamic urban corridors that are safe and accessible for pedestrians and bicyclists, and promoting alternative transportation.
At the start of 2011, the percentage of people who drove alone to jobs in Minneapolis was 62.1 percent with a two percent margin of error, according to the U.S. Census American Community Survey. Since 2005, the drive alone mode share for people working in Minneapolis has been steadily declining, after increases from 1990 to 2005. Despite significant decreases in the carpooling mode share, increases in the transit, bicycling and working at home mode share have contributed to a declining drive alone mode share for people commuting to jobs in Minneapolis.
