The commuter advantage

Sometimes we just have to be reminded of the advantages of living here in the Twin Ports.

Like lower home prices. Like rush hours that are nothing compared to the gridlock of big cities. Like shorter commutes to work.

According to the Wall Street Journal, the average car commute to work in the United States is about 26 minutes. And an increasing number of Americans have very long commutes, the Journal reports, based on recent national data. Moreover, commuters in big cities spend 52 hours a year stuck in traffic. That’s a total of more than two days.

Compare that to the 10 or 15 minutes it takes many of us to get to work in the Twin Ports.

And our time lost from being stuck in traffic?  Not so much.
