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!
