Where do people who work here commute from?
Most of the people who work in West Hollywood are commuting from someplace else, and most of them are getting here by car (83% driving alone or carpooling in 2011-13). The City would like more workers to commute by “alternative modes” like transit and biking. If we know where they’re commuting from, we can do a better job of encouraging them and providing realistic alternatives.
