Setting & Lifestyle
Washington is very much a car-oriented town. This is because the population of Washington isn't large enough or dense enough to support an extensive public transit system. It has a lot of rural roads, and the distance between houses can be quite large, which together tends to discourage walking and bicycling to work. 98.01% of residents commute to work in their own car (and the drive is typically to a job out of town). People also tend to drive out of town for other services as well, such as shopping, doctors appointments, and more.
Washington is a small town, and as such doesn't have a public transit system that people use to get to and from their jobs every day.
