† Source: 1990 Census-based Observed home-based work trips.

Standard Vehicle Occupancy Assumptions:
Drive Alone = 1.0 persons per vehicle
Shared Ride 2 = 2.0 persons per vehicle
Shared Ride 3+ = 3.5 persons per vehicle

Note: The vehicle occupancy rates for home-based shop and social/recreation trips are
based on vehicle driver vs. vehicle passenger data from the 1965 and 1981 surveys. For
the 1990 survey, the vehicle occupancy rates are based on drive alone, shared ride 2 and
shares ride 3+ data. The vehicle occupancy data from the three household survey datasets
are not strictly comparable, given the incomplete information on vehicle occupants obtained
from household travel surveys.
