These U.S. States Have the Greenest Commuters




The majority of workers across the U.S. still commute by personal car, but residents of certain states take greener means of transportation, including public transit, walking, biking or carpooling.

While technically a federal district and not a state, Washington, D.C. has the greenest commuters in the country, according to the U.S. Census Bureau’s 2013 American Community Survey. The survey shows that 57% of D.C. commuters get to work in more sustainable ways, primarily by public transportation and on foot. New York takes the second spot with 35%, followed by Massachusetts with 15%.
