The Mission: Tripling Burque Bike Commuters


Here are the 2014 figures (most recent available) from the Census Bureau on commuting. Albuquerque was at 1.7% as of 2014, while Portland showed an increase of 5,000 riders to get to 7.1%.

An aggressive, yet realistic goal might see Burque tripling to *5.1% by, say, 2020. Or we could get all competitive and just “kill” Portland (Oregon, btw). I’m good either way, but PDX might be hard to catch.

Especially in ferryboat commutes.

Remember this question next time you get a Census survey, bicycle (and pedestrian) commuters!


*The +/- figures are the margin of error. Yeah, they’re gigantic.
