Borderstan 15th Street NW Logan Circle

These traffic signs on 15th Street NW went up after the contraflow bike lane was installed last fall. About 6% of Borderstan readers say they bike to work while 39% commute on foot. (Borderstan)

The reader poll is still open, but the results from around 200 Borderstan readers are in on “How Do You Get to Work?” Close to one-half of our readers use human muscle to commute, either by walking (39%) or cycling (6%). One-third (34%) use some combination of Metro–bus, subway or a combination thereof. Only 13% drive a car to work and 3% work at home. Full results below.
