|Bike Commute Rates from the 2012 ACS (Census)|
Two tracts in orange are between 5 and 10%
Others in beige are between 1% and 5%
With small samples, the error bars will be real, but this is some good data. And the central city is probably closer to 4% overall than the 1.5% or so for the whole area enclosed by the city limits. Investments on the flats close-in could bring us to the 10, 15, even 20% that we see in close-in Portland neighborhoods.
the Strava data??? That would go a ways towards rectifying bias in the Strava routes!)
Also! The walk, bus, drive-alone data is interesting.
|20% of downtowners walk to work!|
|Everybody (over 75%) in West Salem|
drives alone (and everybody else)
|Unfortunately the color heat scheme is different,|
but bus rates are about the same as biking rates,
the same 1% to 5% for most of the city,
and three of a little >5% pockets.
