According to Clif Bar’s website:
- 40% of all urban travel in the US is 2 miles or less
- 90% of those trips are taken by car
Streetcars and Bicycles are a great choice for making those short trips. Neither is well suited for a 40 mile round trip commute, but for the shorter trips that represent nearly half of urban travel in the country, they are a convenient and environmentally friendly choice.
