Informal Survey Shows Wide Dispersal of Alameda Residents on Daily Commute

A survey of Alameda commuters shows a wide range of destinations.

A survey of Alameda commuters shows a wide range of destinations.

An informal survey of Alameda commuters shows that residents disperse widely across the Bay area for their daily commute.

The survey, conducted by Action Alameda News through Alameda forums on Nextdoor and Facebook, and via Twitter, was capped at 100 participants, and posed two questions:

  1. Where do you live?
  2. Pick the closest city to where you regularly commute to work…
    1. Residents had a long list of Bay area cities to choose from, or they could enter their own commute city destination.

      After eliminating responses from non-Alameda residents, and those who said they are retired, or entered “by ferry or BART” as their destination city, 96 responses remained to be analyzed.

      The results show that roughly half of the respondents commute to the peninsula, far East bay, South bay or other East bay destinations. Some 14 percent said they work in Alameda, and 36 percent said they commute to San Francisco.

      Many destinations respondents identified, such as San Mateo, Redwood City, South San Francisco, Sunnyvale, Walnut Creek and others are not conveniently accessible by public transit.

      The Action Alameda News survey was conducted from May 27th through June 1st.

      Coincidentally, the City of Alameda is conducting its own survey about improving transportation conditions in Alameda. That is available online here.

    Is it me, or does the amount of Alameda city staff time and resources being spent on mere analysis of demographic data and solicited responses,for Transportation Demand Management, seem ENORMOUS? How much are all of these paper projects costing Alameda–before they even get built?
    Talk about creating a need and filling it.
