Car commuting is a known risk factor for poor health, by contributing to sedentary behavior and air pollution; prevention efforts to reduce car commuting—especially long, solo commutes—are important to improving public health. This brief estimates the rate of solo car commuting and long (>30 minutes) solo car commutes by rurality and urban adjacency, and identifies differences in socio-demographic factors that relate to commuting behavior by geographic location.
