This report tracks changes in the number of trips, trip type and characteristics, and mode of travel used over the years for Boulder Valley employees. Trip characteristics are also compared to regional and national data and are reported by standard demographic characteristics such as age, sex, owner/renter, income, distance from work, city of residence, job requirements, and car, bike and Eco Pass availability.
