Holliday is a very car-oriented city. 96.50% of residents commute to work in a private automobile rather than by other means, such as public transit, bicycling, or walking. This is because Holliday is a small city , and most people who live here have to drive out of town for work, and the town population is not large nor dense enough to support an extensive public transportation system. Holliday has a lot of rural roads, and houses can be far apart. Many residents drive out of town for regular shopping trips as well.
As is often the case in a small city, Holliday doesn't have a public transportation system that people use for their commute.
