The Census Bureau just came out with some data on commuting times. New York City leads the way -- an average of 38 minutes getting to work. Chicago is second -- 32 minutes. Then come Philadelphia, Riverside (Cal.), and Baltimore.

The national average is 24, an increase of two minutes since 1990.

Among states, New York was first, with a typical commuting time of 31 minutes, followed by Maryland, New Jersey, Illinois and California.

BTW this isn't just about driver commuting -- it's everything, including mass transit.

Shortest commutes: Wichita (16.5 minutes), Tulsa (16.8 minutes) and Omaha (17.3 minutes).


(Got this info from the New York Times.)

I'm about 5 miles from the office... it takes me about 15 mins (all city driving - low speed limits, many traffic lights, etc.). Of course, on the flip side, I don't think it has ever been worse than 20 mins.

45 mins each way except today when I got stuck infront of a draw bridge opening and had to wait 45 mins when the ship broke down right under the bridge.

If I drive, it takes me 50-60 minutes to Philly at 8 am. At 7am, 25 minutes. Distance= 16 miles.

Why does my fuel economy suck again???

Actually, I usually take the train and read

Hey JCG, have you tried driving along the shoulder? You can avoid a lot of bumper-to-bumper that way.

Ahh, so you live in Southern Maryland, and you live 4 miles from your workplace in DC ;)

Northern Virginia - my vote for worst traffic in the east :eek:
