How do People Commute in Charlottesville and Albemarle?

Mostly by car.

The American Community Survey, conducted from 2005 to 2009, shows that 59 percent of Charlottesville residents drive by themselves to work, as well as 77 percent of Albemarle workers.

On a related note, I’ve been looking for updated Journey to Work data for a couple years now, but haven’t been able to locate it anywhere. The most recent datasets are from 2000, and I have a feeling that human settlement and commuting patterns have shifted since then.

    This is a different but similar issue… I would be very interested to know how many c’ville homeowners commute to northern va each week. I do, and I know of at least two others, one of which is at the same company as I am.

    Ginger –

    Thank you for stopping by. I know several people who do and have seen stories about this over the past … I’ll see what data I can find, both hard and anecdotal, to sort it out.
