How many cars are there in Idaho?

Does Idaho have a lot of cars? I’m going to school there in the fall and I’ve been trying to decide if I want to bring my car with me or not. If there are a lot of cars already, it might not be worth it because of the traffic.

According to the 2020 census, there are 588,362 cars in Idaho. This is a very low number of vehicles, although areas of the state with higher populations will have more cars per square mile than rural Idaho.
There are some other things to consider when bringing a car to college though, such as:
  • The ease of traveling home with versus without a vehicle
  • The parking situation on your college campus
  • Public transportation options in your college town
  • Whether or not you’ll live close to your classes
Once you’ve looked into these factors a little more, it might be easier to decide whether or not bringing a car to school will be best for you.
