The statistics aren't pretty:
- Are you one of the one in five who has a commute of one hour or longer?
- The average commute: 34.5 minutes
- More than 150,000 in the metro area endure "mega commutes" of more than 50 miles or 90 minutes.
Maryland sends 113,000 workers into Virginia, which in turn sends 68,000 workers into Maryland, the Post news report said.
Of course, this is nothing new to anyone who drives a car in the morning...or afternoon...or evening. A study by On Numbers, a bizjournals.com blog, showed in 2012 that Centreville residents have one of the worst commutes in the nation. Twenty-nine percent of Centreville residents take at least 45 minutes to get to work, according to that study. And D.C.-area traffic was recently rated worst in the nation by the Texas Transportation Institute.
