High Mileage Commutes

Long commutes are unpopular everywhere, but more difficult to avoid in some parts of the region. This map shows the average vehicle miles traveled per worker, based on the location of employment. On average, auto commute trips generate 18 vehicle miles for each worker in the region, but in many workplaces around the periphery, the average round-trip commute adds up to more than 30 vehicle miles per worker. To learn more, check out this month's Calendar Map.
