Our Nation's Highways: 2008

Figure 4-5. Percent of Trips and Vehicle Miles by Trip Length

For household-based travel, short trips account for the vast majority of trips. Over half of all vehicle trips are between 1 and 10 miles. However, these short trips account for less than one-third (28.3 percent) of all household-based vehicle miles travelled.

Conversely, trips of 100 miles or more account for less than one percent of all vehicle trips, but nearly 15 percent of all household-based vehicle miles.

See paragraph above for explanation of this figure.
