Figure 2: A.M. and P.M. Commute Hours

Figure 2 shows that the Custis Trail is being used heavily as a commuter route during the week. Notice the am and pm spikes, which are typical commuter travel patterns. I can verify this from my own observations on the Custis Trail, where I see most riders with backpacks or panniers during commuting hours. This sends an important message that this trail is a valuable commuting facility, and much more than a recreational trail where people go for some exercise and fresh air. This is important as facilities and projects compete for limited funding that provides improvements, expansion and general maintenance.
