Census Survey puts Portland Transit Commute Share at 13.3%

According to this CNN Money article on the Census Bureau’s American Community Survey, Portland now ranks among the top 10 transit commuter cities with a commute share of 13.3%.

The article also notes that the survey puts the share of bike commuters at 3.5%, about eight times the national average.

I’d like to see the survey questions and data, and learn more about the geographic areas covered, but at least in relative terms this seems to indicate that the steps Portland has been taking to improve transit and bike networks have had an impact.
