Boulder residents work from home, Denver residents like biking
New statistics show more people work from home in Boulder than any other city.
Boulder residents have reason to feel good about themselves after statistics revealed they work from home in greater percentages than people in any other city in the nation. Working from home saves time and infrastructure, not to mention its environmental ad family benefits.
Boulder has the greatest percentage of people using mass transit and working from home than any other city in the nation.
According to the numbers, 10.9 percent of Boulder residents work out of their house, the highest number in the nation.
Conversely, Denver residents were chided for their reliance on private vehicles, in which they drive alone rather than carpool. However, Denver does have a large biking community. About four times as many Denver commuters bike to work than in other cities.
Statistics also show that those who use public transit to get to work have longer commute times, although they can be cheaper and less stressful than driving alone and waiting in traffic.
