Commuting in and out of the city
"On the average weekday, San Francisco gains about 160,000 more bodies in the form of workers who commute in from various Bay Area counties, and counties even further to our north, south, and east. We learned that figure earlier this year via the American Community Survey, and it amounts to the difference in the number of people who commute in for work versus those who live here and commute outside of the city, like down the Peninsula, for work.
