snapshot: Daily vehicle miles per household

By Matt Carroll, Boston Globe | June 14, 2012
Households that drive the most per day tended to be clustered outside Greater Boston or on its outskirts. Eleven communities, including Rochester and Plympton, averaged more than 100 household miles driven a day. Communities such as Boston, Cambridge, and Somerville were among those with the fewest miles. The data is for 2005-2007. It is from Mass. GIS and the Metropolitan Area Planning Council.
