Do you wonder how your commute stacks up against workers across the US?
Using location data created by smartphones, we broke down the median commutes in the continental US by states, ZIP codes, and cities.
Here's why we created this report:
- The average American spends 52 minutes commuting each day
- Inequitable access to jobs is contributing to and exacerbating economic inequality in the US
- If you live in one of our “longest commute” regions or ZIP codes, you can now feel completely justified in complaining about your commute – if you didn’t already!
But when it comes to shortening the commutes of American workers, one size does not fit all.
The length of the commute, the demographics of workers involved, and even factors like weather determine what the best policy and infrastructure solutions are to reduce the environmental impact – and the life impact – of those commutes.
