The U.S. Census Bureau News Service has a news release with the summary of a 2005 survey on commuting. It looks like most Americans still drive to work alone.

Despite rising fuel costs, commuters continued to drive their cars in 2005, according to a new U.S. Census Bureau analysis of data from the American Community Survey. The survey, gathered over the course of the year, found that driving to work was the favored means of commute of nearly nine out of 10 workers (87.7 percent), with most people (77 percent) driving alone.
