Studies show that Americans are spending more time than ever commuting to work and, for a growing number, the commute is reaching epic lengths.
A recent Census Bureau study revealed that 2.8 million people have “extreme commutes” — drive-times that tops 90 minutes.
Before choosing a new neighborhood in which to love, be sure to check commute times and maybe even give it a test drive. Rush Hour is a terrific time to drive from your office to a potential new home in order to truly understand how long a commute will be.
You may find that a short distance doesn’t always equal a short drive.
