Average Vehicle Ridership Survey Results

During the month of January 2020, Go Glendale assisted the City of Glendale in conducting Average Vehicle Ridership (AVR) surveys at seven properties in Downtown Glendale. Residents and employees of the properties recorded their trips for the week of January 13 to January 17, 2020. Go Glendale analyzed these trips to determine these properties’ overall AVR and breakdown of commute modes in order to better understand the travel patterns of the commuters in Downtown Glendale. The results are summarized in this blog post.

Average Vehicle Ridership is the ratio of number of employee or resident trips to the number of vehicle trips.

We ranked the seven properties according to their AVR, with #1 being the highest and #7 being the lowest.

#1- Hyatt Place

#2- TheBrand

#3- AMLI Lex on Orange

#4- Modera

#5- Onyx

#6- Altana

#7- Legendary

With an average of 69% drive-alone trips and 1.35 AVR, we have a long way to go to make Downtown Glendale more sustainable.
