Survey Indicates Commuting on the Rise Again


According to recently released survey data from the U.S. Census Bureau, the percentage of individuals engaged in remote work decreased from approximately 18% in 2021 to 15.2% in 2022. 

This decrease has also impacted other areas, such as commuting. 

Although there was a notable decrease in remote work from 2021 to 2022, it remained nearly three times higher than the pre-pandemic levels of 2019, where it stood at only 5.7%. Additionally, during 2022, more than three-quarters of workers continued to commute alone in their vehicles.

In 2022, there was an increase in the rate of individuals commuting to work alone in a vehicle, rising from 67.8% to 68.7%, and for carpoolers, the percentage increased from 7.8% to 8.6%. 

Moreover, the use of public transportation experienced a year-over-year growth, climbing from 2.5% to 3.1%.
