Mass. commuters spend more time on the road than most in U.S.

Patriotledger.com reports that Mass. commuters spend more time on the road than most in U.S. New Census figures puts the average Mass. commute at 27.3 minutes, longer than 46 other states. Statewide, 72.5 percent of commuters drive to work alone, while 9.3 percent took public transit and 8.3 percent carpooled. Roughly 10 percent walk, work from home or get to their jobs by other means.

Local commute estimates come from the Census Bureau’s annual American Community Survey, which delves into greater detail than the decennial Census. The Census Bureau recently released compiled survey results from 2006-10.
