The time people report going to or coming home from work has a significant impact on transit operations. As we all likely know, if many travel at once, overloads are possible, but service might not be available if few travel to or from work at a specific time.
The Bureau of Labor Statistics released this table in 2004, twelve years ago. While this table is still useful (for instance, more people reported going to work around 6 am than all full-time workers between 10:30 and 3:30, which suggests that early-morning service may be more useful for workers than more mid-day service), it is outdated; search efforts to find a newer table have not been successful. Does anyone know if a more current edition of this information is available?
