Portland Students: 800% Better than Their National Counterparts


Perhaps you've noticed that the Commuter Central crack investigative journalist team has been blogging more about children.  We've reported about the socio-cultural experience of riding the bus with our newborn daughter and about the number of options families have when getting to and from school. And now we've just come across this article on Grist about making transit more family-friendly. 

But nothing says blog fodder like a good ol' fashioned chart showing how good Portland is.  Let's face it, we love this place.  For all the complaining we do about the wet or the gray or the lack of Indian restaurants in your neighborhood, Portland holds a special place in our hearts.  So, with no further ado I give you Another Chart Showing How Portland Rocks - this one showing how students in Portland's Safe Routes to School Program bicycle 800% more and walk nearly 300% more to and from school than their national counterparts.
