WEEHAWKEN - According to the Census Bureau, New Jersey commuters face a longer travel time than the majority of the country.
New numbers out today showed that the average commute in the United States is 25 minutes. The Census Bureau reports that is not the case for more than 14 percent of New Jersey commuters who face 90 minutes or more of travel time each way. Among those people who commute more than an hour and a half every day, the Census Bureau says only 23 percent take mass transit.
The state with the shortest commutes is Nebraska. Less than 3 percent of the working population has an hour or more to commute.
