The charts illustrate the causes for travelling and the chief problems for those who travel in the US in 2009.

In broad, it is clear that there was a marked difference between work-related travel and other causes of travel. A similar relation could be observed for price of travel, as far as factors troubling travelers are concerned.

Firstly, the bar chart indicates that commuting to and from work was the prime motivation for travelling, as stated by nearly a half of the travelers. At significantly smaller figures, slightly under one fifth of the people travelled for personal reasons and 16% for the purpose of shopping. Only one out of every ten travelers went out for social reasons or for recreation whereas visiting friends and relatives was the least significant cause of travelling (at only 6%).

Turning to the main issues for the travelling public, it is remarkable that price of travel was the main issue, constituting more than a third. This is followed by safety concerns, aggressive driver and highway congestion with figures ranging from 19% to 14%. By contrast, very small proportions of travelers were troubled by pedestrian space (6%) and access to public transport (5%)
