Table 8: Percent of Public Transportation Long Distance Trips Using Different Modes in Each Direction Where Opposite Direction Trip is via Personal Vehicle

Excel | CSV

Travel via long-distance mode (both directions) Personal vehicle share of opposite direction different mode trips (percent) Standard error
Air 84.7 0.07
Bus 86.6 0.05
Train 65.4 0.22
Other 40.8 0.16
Total 44.2 0.02
Total for public transportation modes 79.2 0.01

NOTES: Only trips in which the transportation mode could be identified in both travel directions are considered.

The only statistical difference in the percentage of return trips utilizing personal vehicle is between air and "other" and between bus and "other". All other comparisons in that column are not statistically different.

Underlined estimates are based on a small sample size (<30) or a coefficient of variation greater than 30% and are not reliable.
