    Stats on per capita auto / bicycle usage?

    I'm curious about where in the US automobile usage is highest and lowest, and more generally, what sorts of transportation is used in what areas. Does anyone know of a place to get these sorts of statistics? Most things I've found are either too general -- like about the US as a whole -- or about fatalities and crashes and the like.

    Another likely place to look is the Bureau of Transportation Statistics:

    I believe I found this through another forum member and would like to credit them, but I'm not certain who it was.

    Here's a thread on this data we had a while back.

    We had trouble using the links to make the website's program to work, so it might be best to do your own search on the census site.
