More fun with graphs
Continuing the discussion of Washingtonian transit exceptionalism from here and here, commenter SamZ posted this graph comparing the amount of non-car commuting in each region between the "transit zone" (within a half mile of transit) to the rest of the region.
Our transit zone commuters ride transit, bike and walk more than in other cities. There's also a greater split between the transit zone and the rest (though bicycle commuting is on the rise in Fairfax too).
On the lighter side, commenter Dave Murphy posted this amusing graph:

- Think you know Metro? It's whichWMATA week 25
- If Georgetown had a Metro station, it would be one of the system's busiest
