Residents of D.C., Arlington and Alexandria mostly use transit, with 13 percent of those residents taking bikes to work, according to a Metropolitan Washington Council of Governments report.

About 35 percent of commuters work from home “at least occasionally,” according to the report, and about 58 percent drive to work alone, which is down from 61 percent in 2016.
