9% of Boulder commuters commute by bike

From 2006 U.S. Census data, as reported at Go Bike Boulder.

Boulder transportation mode share

In a survey of larger cities, Portland, OR had the highest percentage of bike commuters at 3.5 percent. Nationwide, the share of commuters biking to work in 2006 was 0.4%.

In the chart, "SOV" means Single Occupant Vehicle.


  1. Does somebody have a subscription? I'd like to see where Philly is but I don't wanna pay.

  2. I can't find the 2006 data for Philly -- perhaps somebody with better Internet sluething skills can find that info from the U.S. Census website?

  3. Motorcycles aren't SOVs? Nothing against motorcycles, I'm just trying to figure out why they were considered separately. Is driving a motorcycle significantly different from driving a small car? Is it difficult to find safe motorcycle parking? Et cetera?
