Younger Workers in Cities More Likely 

to Bike to Work

May 17 is National Bike to Work Day and events are held around the country to encourage people to commute by bicycle.

The most recent American Community Survey (ACS) 5-year estimates covering the years 2013-2017 show that about 872,000 people, or 0.6% of all workers in the United States (Table S0801), bike to work.

The ACS asks workers about their primary method of transportation to work. This provides data about national commuting patterns, including biking to work.
