Approximately 70-80 percent of people in Atlanta counties and around the U.S. drive alone, and 10-15 percent carpool, with the small remainder choosing to work from home, walk, bike or take public transit, according to FlowingData. The information was pulled from the Census Bureau's 2013 American Community Survey.
One surprising fact: Not a single metro Atlanta county reported public transit usage at or above 10 percent. DeKalb saw the highest rate -- 8 percent. Fulton reported 7 percent.
