“The number of people biking and walking to work in Minneapolis continued its steady increase again in 2012, according to a survey from the U.S. Census Bureau’s American Community Survey that was released this week,” writes MPR News reporter Jon Collins.
Biking continues to grow in popularity, with 4.5 percent of Minneapolis residents saying they regularly bike to work, according to the survey. That number hasn’t been higher since the Census started conducting the yearly survey on that topic in 2005, when just 2.4 percent of city residents commuted by bike.
About 6.9 percent of people in Minneapolis walked to work in 2012. That’s the highest number since 2006.
