Total Travel Down in Tullahoma/Manchester Metro Area, Long Road Trips Up since onset of Pandemic

Since the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, Americans have been traveling substantially less. However, long-distance road trips in the U.S. have increased drastically since last year. Researchers identified the metropolitan areas whose residents have been taking the most road trips this year compared to last.

In the Tullahoma-Manchester metro area, total travel has decreased by 22.0% percent since last year. Nevertheless, long distance road trips have increased by 31.0% over the same time period.

To identify the metropolitan areas that have reported the greatest increases in long-distance road trips, researchers at seoClarity analyzed data from the U.S. Bureau of Transportation Statistics, calculating the percentage change in the number of 100-500-mile road trips between the first two weeks of August 2020 and the first two weeks of August 2019. The researchers also calculated the average daily number of long-distance trips taken during both time periods, as well as the percentage change in all travel.
