Exhibit 13-12

Exhibit 13-2 is a bar graph that shows the distribution of travel time to work. The vertical axis measures percent of workers from 0 to 18 in increments of 2 percent. The horizontal axis has 13 bars, one for each travel time grouping. About 3.8 percent of workers have a commute to work of less than five minutes. 11 percent take 5 to 9 minutes, 14 percent take 10 to 14 minutes, 15.3 percent take 15 to 19 minutes, 14 percent take 20 to 24 minutes, 5.7 percent take 25 to 29 minutes, 12.5 percent take 30 to 34 minutes, 2.5 percent take 35 to 39 minutes, 3.2 percent take 40 to 44 minutes, 7 percent take 45-59 minutes, 5 percent take 60 to 89 minutes, and 2 percent take an hour and a half or more to get to work. The last bar shows that about 3.2 percent work at home.
