The University of Michigan Transportation Research Institute (UMTRI) recently released a report which analyzed aspects of commuting in the 30 largest U.S. cities using data from the 2013 American Community Survey. Aspects studied included average worker age, gender, access to a personal vehicle, carpooling behavior, use of public transit, and length of commute. The U.S. worker’s average commute took about 25.8 minutes. Oklahoma City was ranked #1 as having the shortest average commute time at 20.7 minutes. The longest average commute was in New York City at 39.7 minutes.
