Increased activity in the gas and coal mining areas around Gillette and Wright and more commercial development around Laramie and Weld counties have increased both commuter and commercial traffic on Wyoming highways 59 and 450 and Interstate highways 25 and 90. The Wyoming Department of Transportation (WYDOT) is addressing the increase through widening of highways to accommodate more vehicles and use of public transit such as buses and trains.

The state of Wyoming encourages employees to carpool, bike, or use mass transit when commuting to work. Commuting via public transportation is facilitated by the federal- and state-funded Wyoming Public Transit Association (WYTRANS), a nonprofit organization of over 40 public transportation service providers in the state.
