WNYC, NPR’s local New York station, has used new census data to create an interactive commute map. The average travel time to work in the U.S. is 25.4 minutes, according to the U.S. Census Bureau. Regions with the longest commutes to and from work each day are Puerto Rico, New York, Maryland and New Jersey, where more than 14% of residents spend at least two hours each weekday commuting.
So how does your daily commute compare?
