Commute times to work continue to rise

Posted: Updated:

A new report released, shows nearly four million workers travel more than 90 minutes or more each day to work. 

Those who drive 90 or more minutes are know as super commuters. This number has gone up 15.9% since 2005, making that 2.8% of all commuters in 2016. The largest super commuters are found in expensive cities like San Francisco, Los Angeles, and New York. 

Many people are not available to afford expensive city housing, which makes them move away from their job area. Those who are far away rely on various types of public transportation.
