More and more Aucklanders are commuting to work by car, despite a marginal increase in public transport use in the past decade.
A new analysis of commuting patterns, published yesterday by Statistics NZ, shows that the proportion taking the car to work in the Auckland region rose from 78.4 per cent in 1996 to 78.6 per cent in 2001 and 78.8 per cent in the last Census, in 2006.
Public transport's share rose in the same period from 6.1 per cent to 6.3 per cent and then 6.4 per cent.
