Go Glendale 2022 Average Vehicle Ridership Survey Results

In 2022, many of us started returning to our jobs in-person on a more regular basis. Despite more regular commuting habits, this year’s Average Vehicle Ridership (AVR) survey demonstrates an even higher commitment to sustainability than last year.

Throughout the month of October, Go Glendale partnered with the City of Glendale to conduct an AVR survey with each of our eight member properties in Downtown Glendale. For one week, we asked you about your commute routines, your thoughts on public transportation, and ideas on what changes could make sustainable commutes to and from Glendale even easier. Go Glendale then analyzed and summarized these results, bringing you the final results in this post.

Take a look at how Glendale commutes, and how things have changed since 2021!

As a note, the Average Vehicle Ridership is a ratio of the number of employee/resident trips over the number of vehicle trips. The higher the ratio, the fewer vehicle trips are being taken in comparison to all trips.

Thank you to the eight properties that participated in the Go Glendale AVR survey this year! This year, we saw a decrease in telecommuting, along with an increase in sustainable modes, and a decrease in single-occupancy vehicle (SOV) trips. With transit frequencies back to pre-pandemic levels as of December 11th and more improvements happening in the coming years, Go Glendale is optimistic that this trend can continue in the coming months and years.

With an AVR score of 2.43 (when averaging AM and PM trips), we are still well above our goal of 1.25. However, there is still much work to be done to keep this number high as we continue to recover from the commute disruptions of the pandemic.
