Specific to the East Village in NYC, although this could probably be extended to most of the city, foot traffic (walkers, bikers and subway riders) accounts for 95% of retail dollars spent:

People on bike and foot spend the most per capita per week, $163 and $158, respectively, at local businesses. Car and subway users spend less per capita, $143 and $111, respectively, although the volume of subway riders makes them the second highest total spenders of any transportation mode.
