Holding a job can be stressful enough, but add in a long commute and it can be a recipe for unhappiness. According to the Census Bureau, the average American needs 25.4 minutes to travel to work but sometimes traffic problems and other factors can easily push it to an hour or more. Fortunately, many employers such as Microsoft and Seattle’s Department of Transportation are aware of commuting issues and offer solutions to relief stress for their employees. TransitScreen also offers real-time digital transportation data to keep people updated about any problems affecting their ride home.

Key Takeaways:

  • The average commute time in the United States according to the Census Bureau is 25.4 minutes, but this can stretch as high as an hour or more with persistent traffic congestion.
