Commute time by distance and mode

How does each commuting method compare over a variety of different commuting distances? Walking is practical up to 2 km, bicycle up to 5km, and electric-bicycle up to 10km.

For each commute type, how much wealth leaves the city?

For each commute type, how dependent is it on external resources imported into the city? Assuming the city produces no oil, makes no vehicles or vehicle parts these items must all be imported into the city. The value of labour is not imported and is not included in these figures below.

If a city has 100,000 people and a working population ratio of 52%, there are 52,000 jobs. Let’s calculate the imported value of these commutes based on average commute modes and distances in the USA. (mode breakdown)(distance factor)
