2015 Car Usage

This is the seventh year I have tracked car usage, so I think it's safe to say this has become a habit. As has the nerdy tracking and graphing of it in Microsoft Excel. (You can check out 2014 here, 2013 here, 2012 here, 2011 here, 2010 here, and 2009 here.)

As before, the Philly totals represent, in order, number of trips, number of legs represented in those trips (i.e. going to and from my in-laws, making one stop to get gas, counts as three legs), and number of legs in which I was driven (rather than driving).

The other city totals represent, in order, number of times I was in that location, number of days I was in that location, number of trips, number of legs represented in those trips, and number of legs in which I was driven.  (Note how unnecessary a car is in northeastern cities like NYC and Wilmington, vs. how often I drove in other cities like San Jose or Oklahoma City.)

Dec 10/32/5 SJ 2/9/17/49/0 NYC 1/1/0/0/0 Wilmington 1/1/0/0/0

So my Philly total is 129 trips involving 340 legs, plus another 16 legs in which I was driven.  So that works out to about 10 car trips a month, and 1 leg per day.  A hair more than before, which I chalk up to the kids having more extra-curriculars that involve driving (Jada has gymnastics in Conshy, while Aaron's swim meets are rarely transit-accessible).
