Average work commute

Your Two Cents: How Does Your Commute Compare?

I'm a sucker for statistics that show how many days we spend each year sleeping, brushing our teeth, sitting in traffic, etc. Did you know that New Yorkers spend about a week each year traveling to their jobs? They spend about 38 minutes a day commuting, while it takes about 25 minutes for most Americans to get to work.

I was surprised to find that the average San Francisco commute is slightly longer — or was longer, the Census data is a bit dated — than commuting in Los Angeles. Whenever I'm visiting L.A., I feel like a quarter of my trip is spent in traffic!
So, how long does it take you to get to work?
