Evening commuters headed westbound on Leesburg Pike

Cars traveling westbound on Leesburg Pike during evening rush hour in Loudoun County.

More people in the Washington region are choosing to telework compared with pre-pandemic levels, while those who are returning to work once or twice a week are preferring to drive alone instead of using public transport, according to a recent survey of the region’s employees.

Released Sept. 8, the Metropolitan Washington Council of Governments’ (MWCOG) triennial “State of the Commute” reveals what is visible on the roads: more drivers back on Leesburg Pike heading to and from Loudoun County.
