NEW YORK — The U.S. Census Bureau's American Community Survey found that most New Yorkers would rather ride public transportation or walk to get to work, according to WNYC.

Transit use has been steadily rising since 2006 — from 54.2 percent of New Yorkers in the five boroughs in 2006 to 55.7 percent in 2010. By contrast, 22.7 percent of New Yorkers drive to work, down from 23.6 percent in 2006. Fewer New Yorkers are also carpooling, down to 5.0 percent from 5.7 percent.
