Commuting Patterns 2010: Portland #2 In Work at Home Share, with Percentage Higher than Transit Work Trip Percentage.

Newgeography post is HERE

About Portland the post says: 
Austin had the strongest work-at-home market share, at 7.3%, followed by Portland at 6.5%, San Francisco and Denver at 6.2%, Phoenix at 6.0%, with San Diego, Raleigh and Atlanta above 5.5%. Overall, working at home exceeded transit commuting in 37 major metropolitan areas out of 51 in 2010, up from 27 in 2000.

Portland: Portland continued to experience its now 30 year transit market share erosion, despite having added three new light rail lines between 2000 and 2010. Portland's transit work trip market share fell to 6.2% from 6.3% and now trails the work at home and telecommute market share of 6.5%.
Table at bottom of post shows data for major metro areas. 

Not clear how this might impact H+T index cost burdens for Portland, any ideas?
