How you get to work – by car, bus, train, or other means – and how much time it takes up in your day is a major quality of life and financial consideration. The duration and mode of one’s commute can be a financial hardship, especially with gasoline costs on the rise and likely to continue. Some areas of the city are physically located in such a way that many residents must drive their own car, while others are designed so that many residents can walk to work or take the train, bus, or bike. The greatest number of commuters in Makiki Heights suburb spend between 15 and 30 minutes commuting one-way to work, which is shorter than the time spent commuting to work for most Americans. To travel to work, the majority of inhabitants drive alone in a personal vehicle. Furthermore, many people carpool with coworkers, acquaintances, or neighbors to go to work. Many homeowners in this neighborhood, as in most of the country, find having a car useful for going to work.
